Quick Edit your PDF with PdfMod

Earlier and had taught them to edit pdf through OpenOffice. This option is very rare to find and highly valued, but has its flaws (misconfiguration of document format, for example) and is more complex.

So if you're a user looking for basic options, this program is going to attract attention. His name is PdfMod, and allows us to rearrange, rotate or add pages to our pdf document. We may also edit title, author and keywords. May find it much, but useful if you want a review of cases, for example.

Installation is simple, and will make it through terminal (Applications/Accessories/Terminal):
1- Install the dependencies needed to PdfMod with :
  • sudo aptitude install build-essential intltool mono-gmcs y luego tipeamos sudo ln -s /usr/bin/gmcs2 /usr/bin/gmcs
2- We went down to PdfMod
  • get http://ftp.gnome.org/pub/GNOME/sources/pdfmod/0.5/pdfmod-0.5.tar.gz
3- Then unpack, go to folder and compile:
  • tar zxvf pdfmod-0.5.tar.gz
  • cd pdfmod-0.5
  • ./configure && make && sudo make install
To install a new version through PPA, open a terminal and add repository with:
  • sudo add-apt-repository ppa:pdfmod-team/ppa sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install pdfmod
After all this, we have installed PdfMod. All we need to access it from Applications/Accessories/PdfMod:

It is an interesting application. It is useful if you want content, but for more general things.

I hope you liked it.
