|On another matter: has anyone had any luck with guipdftk.dsl? When I tried it, didn't seem to work|
- it didn't work for me either, started to fire up and then disappeared.
The whole pdf thing is one of my last remaining "can't seem to get this to work in linux" issues. Even if I make a simple pdf by scanning in an image in gimp-1.2 at 150dpi, saving it as ps and then running ps2pdf, xpdf crashes when it tries to open it.
I tried many times to compile gs with the "make so" option in order to try gsview but the make fails with an error that gets no hits at all in google.
I also looked at foxit reader - it compiles and loads but the fonts don't work (I just get small squares) so I cannot do anything with it.
I looked at adobe pdf for linux, but the thing is so huge I didn't even try to make it work...
