    Default join pdf files

    hi folks!

    I have to merge two different pdf files and I don't know how to do this.
    ..(I use opensuse 11.3 with gnome).

    thanks!

    OpenOffice 3.2 edits PDF files. I imagine LibreOffice does the same. Why don't you have a look at those?

    Hum... Kinda messy to do that in OOo. There's a small app for KDE called kpdftool that can merge, extract pages, protect, render (convert to bitmap) and recover PDFs. Quite handy if you don't mind loading KDE libraries. There's probably something similar for GNOME.

    I haven't tried it myself, but it could be as simple as cut-and-paste. Ghostscript might have a better way,

    I tend to play with different Linux PDF applications.

    Currently for simple joining of pdf files, I am using pdftk together with the front end pdftk-qgui (on openSUSE-11.2). I used this repository:
    Code:
    http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/enzokiel/openSUSE_11.2_Update/
    But there are many ways to do this.

    I note same applications are in the 11.3 repository of same user:
    Code:
    http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/enzokiel/openSUSE_11.3_Update/
    Note after installing an app from such a repository, I always remove the repository.

    It is also available in packman, which many people have.

    your post reminded me of something i saw recently, but i have no experience with it, nor does it seem to be available thru the BuildService which means you'd have to compile it yourself....

    pdftoolkit (pdftk) was my choice up to 11.3. something changed in 11.3 and it will no longer compile.

    however, this will work:

    gs -sDEVICE=pdfwrite -dNOPAUSE -dBATCH -sOutputFile=out.pdf *.pdf

    gs is for ghostscript. the case of the options is important. OutputFile != outputfile.
