Using Gimp and Krita to edit and print to pdf

I’m looking for a pdf editor that has the ability to change only 4 characters of text in a 498 page pdf. The best I found was a how to using gimp to edit the pdf and krita to print it back out to pdf.

I was able to get the sofware installed.

But if you look at the how to How to Edit PDF Files in Linux Using GIMP: 7 Steps **Open GIMP, and then open the PDF document you wish to edit. For multiple page documents, it is easier on your computer to edit them one page at a time. If you choose more than one page, they will open in individual windows." then “**Make the necessary changes to the document.” ****it says that I’ll have to edit them one page at a time. So how do I edit one page of a 498 page pdf? Then put it back in once edited?

Ugh.

Have a look at pdftk tool kit and pdfedit. The GUI for the first one is
pdftk-qgui. Maybe you have to get them from packman.

Why did you put a space in the middle? “pdftk-qgui” is a single word,
and it is a GUI, not a CLI command. And it will not be installed, you
have to do that, too.

Just open libreoffice and then open the pdf using it.
Edit the file and export it to pdf

GNOME 3.6.2
openSUSE Release 12.3 (Dartmouth) 64-bit
Kernel Linux 3.7.10-1.16-desktop

Say you want to edit page 276, enter

pdfjam file_name.pdf 1-275

and then rename it to file_name1.pdf

pdfjam file_name.pdf 276

and then rename it to file_name2.pdf

pdfjam file_name 277-498

and then rename it to file_name3.pdf

Edit the single page file_name2.pdf in whatever editor you prefer.

Enter

pdfjam file_name1.pdf file_name2.pdf file_name3.pdf

and remove _pdfjam from the resulting file_name as pdfjam appends _pdfjam to the changed file; hence the need to rename the files.
