(preferably Linux-based, OS) utility to extract images from image-based pdf files ...

The output of pdfimages would be a whole page image if the input is a non-searchable, image-based pdf files. Take for example:

https://www.nysedregents.org/ushistorygov/Archive/20000126exam.pdf

which utility would detect the cartoons on page 6 and 7?

Albretch,

This will likely be a two-step process:

1. Extract page images from pdf using a tool such at the one you indicate. 2. Extract subpage components from separate image files, using a tool such as: https://opensource.com/article/18/5/getting-started-luminoth

Linux terminals makes such processing rather easy.

NOTE that I have not personally used a tool like luminoth so I cannot comment on its accuracy, but its website pages suggest it may have the capability to do what you want (well, using the example document you provided and the examples shown on its website).

Good luck!
