any pdf editor for opensuse11.3

I use OpenOffice to edit pdf files.

I use okular and acrobat reader.

How to edit a pdf file in Okular???

It just open the text in openoffice powerpoint.

i need a software like FOXIT PHANTOM PDF

I use Writer to open then edit and save as PDF


I can suggest following software:
pdfedit: PDFedit - pdf manipulating library, GUI, tools (there are pdfedit versions for older opensuse versions)
pdftk + pdftk-qgui: you can install it from the Packman repository.

Good luck


I have to agree. I’ve been using pdfedit since 2008. See below:

Multiplatform library working on Unix systems, Windows32/64 and also Windows CE and others. You can use it to read, change and extract information from a PDF file. It is based on xpdf library.

Tools include example usage of the library which proved to be useful.

I use Xournal for marking up, but based on this particular question, it’s
hard to know what exactly you’re trying to accomplish. Maybe you could
define what you’re trying to do more precisely?

This software is not available for opensuse11.3.
i have not only in thread title but also in body mentioned that i need for opensuse11.3.

If you look at the other forum on which you have posted this question (linuxquestions), you will see that it* is *available for 11.3, and there are installation instructions. Whether it does what you want, is still unclear.

I found this article. Using this approach I am able to do all I need to edit in pdf…
