I tried to download the pdf from the following repository but i get an error

https://github.com/merklebloom/IoMv1 Ive done the following: $ git clone https://github.com/merklebloom/IoMv1.git $ cd IoMv1/ $ make pdf

It fails to create the pdf.

And I get this error message:

if [ ! -d "_build" ]; then \ mkdir _build; \ cp -R -L /etc/asciidoc/images _build; \ cp images/* _build; \ cp chapters/en/* _build; \ cp conf/* _build; \ fi; \

export XML_CATALOG_FILES=/usr/share/xml/docbook/schema/dtd/catalog.xml; \ cd _build; \ a2x --format=pdf --conf-file=a2x.conf --fop --xsl-file=custom-docbook-styles.xsl -k --verbose master.asciidoc; \

/bin/sh: 3: a2x: not found Makefile:65: recipe for target 'create_pdf' failed make: *** [create_pdf] Error 127

Same goes for creating any other file such as pdf, html, epub, kindle.


This isn't a problem with git. The problem is that the program 'a2x' is not found. Either you don't have it installed, or it can't be found in your path.
