This links to the website rather than the download. However, when you click:

So bz2 is not a a document format... it's a compression format
(similar to Zip in the windows world). To decompress the file,
assuming you downloaded the PDF of Rute's book
simply do this in a terminal:
That'll decompress the file and you'll be left with rute.pdf which
should be readable in anything that handles the PDF format.
Ah I see.
The thing is, you're asking a very nebulous question, still.
'nebulous' w.r.t you, not in general. Don't take it otherwise, I give a
You are asked to do some operation of stomach (as a doctor) on a patient in
front of you, can you? You would then ask the question which are 'nebulous'
but w.r.t doctors since you are in a different profession. So is the case
here.......<grin>....But if you like medical science, you can read about it
and implement, like one like using Linux!
You specifically asked for Rute's exposition, and I've provided you with a
PDF link as well as instructions for decompressing the bz2 file to get
a readable PDF.
However, I was not asking for that, but was giving a simple example that
like Rute's files are there available in *.html.bz2 format, in a similar
fashion is it possible for 'Ubuntu Community Driven Documents' or not...?
That's all. I guess, pdf download of Rute's tutorials are not working from

Saying "I want the 10.04 documentation" is still too general. But in
an attempt to be helpful still:
a simple google search for "ubuntu 10.04 documentation pdf" returns
some useful results, the first of which are the Ubuntu User manual and
the Ubuntu Server guide.
That I do.

Thanks but should I do it on each page of community driven documentation
in whole could it be done?
One by one. Unless you find a way to script it.
At this point of time (being from other field and getting less time to
learn Linux), I would say no I don't know the way(s) of script. However, if
it is available somewhere (anywhere or on website) in a step-by-step way, I
can implement that.....(if all the instructions are written). However, as
it is now not ABSOLUTELY must to have all in the pdf form, I would rather
implement 'print to pdf' option (unless one tells me the said or point to
link for that..., <grin>), though I have to do that one page by one page...!
Two atoms are walking along. Suddenly, one stops. The other says, "What's
