We will assume that our docbook document is in File.xml

Setting up Docbook in Arch

To set up docbook running on arch:

$ pacman -S docbook-xml docbook-xsl libxslt libxml2

Validating XML file

To validate the XML file use:

$ xmllint --valid --noout File.xml

This will generate no output if the file is proper XML.

Converting into XHTML

Single file

To convert into a XHTML file (single file) use:

xsltproc /usr/share/xml/docbook/xhtml/docbook.xsl File.xml > Output.html


To convert into a a segmented XHTML file (each section in its own file) use:

xsltproc /usr/share/xml/docbook/xhtml/chunk.xsl File.xml


You can add these to ~/.bashrc(or similar shell startup file):

alias doc2html1="xsltproc /usr/share/xml/docbook/xhtml/docbook.xsl"
alias doc2multihtml="xsltproc /usr/share/xml/docbook/xhtml/chunk.xsl"
alias docvalidate="xmllint --valid --noout"
