Subject RE: How to increase the quality or resolution of converted PDF or PowerPoint files
Date Wed, 02 May 2012 05:37:18 GMT
Hi,

 

To explain why I would like to increase the PowerPoint slide conversion process, please review
the following clips from screen shots of an actual PowerPoint presentation slide and that
of the slide as it is in OpenMeetings.

 

And yes the images included in the slide do have small text, but that is what  our need is.
 The closer I can get to the actual PowerPoint presentation’s quality, the better.  The
below images are only one example.

 

Below is the screen shot clip from PowerPoint;

 

 

Below is the screenshot clip from OpenMeetings;

 

 

 

 

Thanks,

 

George Kirkham

Maxim,


Thanks for you comments.

 

You said that your using Ubuntu and ant works. 

 

Is that a standard build of Ubuntu with no extra packages installed?  

 

Otherwise could you please tell me what other packages you have installed for running and
compiling OpenMeetings and compiling ant (e.g. Java, swftools, sox, mysql, openoffice, imagemagick,
gs-gpl, ffmpeg, red5 server, build-essentials, etc).   If other items were not installed by
packages, then how they were installed.

 

Thanks,

 

George Kirkham

I'm using Ubuntu Desktop/server 11.10 and 12.04 both works as expected with ant installed
using apt-get

Stephen,

 

You were correct I was using the wrong version of ant so thanks for explaining to me how I
could download and use the correct version.

 

My build fails with the error, if you know how to get resolve the error please let me know.
 I expect that it will be something simple like not having any JAVA_HOME environment variable
set, or the wrong version of Java ?

Hey George,

 

I’ll look at this before lunch.

 

Out of curiosity what was the issue you had with compiling?

 

If you are using Debian and got ant via apt-get install ant then this will fail as the version
that gets installed doesn’t support the force option so you will need to download the binary
from the apache ant web site:

 

Example quick fix:

 

mkdir /usr/tmp/ant

cd /usr/tmp/ant

wget http://mirror.rmg.io/apache//ant/binaries/apache-ant-1.8.3-bin.tar.gz <http://mirror.rmg.io/apache/ant/binaries/apache-ant-1.8.3-bin.tar.gz>


tar –zxvf apache-ant-1.8.3-bin.tar.gz

 

then cd to your svn OM directory (in this example = /usr/tmp/svn/openmeetings/trunk/singlewebapp/)

 

now issue

 

/usr/tmp/ant/apache-ant-1.8.3/bin/ant 

               

This will use the 1.8.3 version of ant to compile the OM 2.

 

I’ll come back to you later with my tests.

 

Cheers

 

	the –j flag?
