#StackBounty: #python #pdf #pdfminer #pdf-parsing PDFminer empty output

Bounty: 100

While processing a file with pdfminer (pdf2txt.py) I received empty output:

dan@work:~/project$ pdf2txt.py  docs/homericaeast.pdf 

dan@work:~/project$ 

Can anybody say what wrong with this file and what I can do to get data from it?

Here’s dumppdf.py docs/homericaeast.pdf output:
