Some useful little tips for various programs:

  • From flac to mp3 in Ubuntu: This worked great, but make sure you have ``lame'' and ``flac''
    sudo apt-get install flac
    sudo apt-get install lame
    Then in the folder with all the .flac files:
    for f in *.flac; do flac -cd "$f" | lame -b 320 - "${f%.*}".mp3; done
  • This allows to transfer .eps file to .pdf keeping the original size of figure: ps2pdf -dEPSCrop fig1.eps fig1a.pdf
  • Taking -dEPSFitPage instead of -dEPSCrop can be also useful (if you want just to avoid cutting off some parts of figures but keeping the full page size for .pdf).
