PDF: Document Viewing and Annotaion


Install cups-pdf to be able to print to a pdf file via cups instead of to a printer.

Evince is a very good PDF (and other document format) viewer for Gnome.

To use Acroreader, a freely available but closed source pdf viewer, as a plugin for web browsers, install acroread-plugin.

To extract all but the first page from a pdf document:

$ pdftk abc.pdf cat 2-end output xyz.pdf

To markup or edit a pdf document, use flpsed, a PostScript markup tool, and import the pdf document.
