Publican helps you build books in DocBook XML. Thanks to jsmith and stickster who introduced me to this tool chain. Now I can write a book using vim :) I really loved the output it generated. But still in Fedora 8, it can only generate html, no pdf yet :(
So, I installed it in my rawhide desktop, but no luck :(. This bug is already filled. I downloaded the required xsl files from here to do a manual try. Made changes to main-html.xsl and main-pdf.xsl in /usr/share/publican/xsl/ and pointed them to my local copy. It worked! now I can create HTML , but still no luck with pdf creation as fop failed with this.
