HowTo: Print pdf in Ubuntu Intrepid Ibex (8.10)

I don’t know why, but cups-pdf does not work for me any more. There is now an easier way than to set up and print with cups-pdf.

You do not need to configure anything ๐Ÿ™‚ Just do as you would had installed a Printer (File -> Print) and select Print to file an as output format: pdf. Press Print and you are done ๐Ÿ™‚




How to read the Comments in a pdf with acroread (not evince)

Comment You know the picture on the left? You have a pdf-document with comments? You hover over it with evince and what happens? Nothing! I searched for information about how I can read the comment in the pdf with the default viewer evince.

Image Hosted by I found nothing so I thought maybe acroread can do this. This is the Adobe Acrobat Reader for Linux. This worked ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Get acroread per sudo apt-get install acroread.
  2. Open your pdf: acroread /path/to/your/file.pdf.
  3. Hover over the comment.

It’s a pity that evince does not support comments. For me the goal

to replace the multiple document viewers that exist on the GNOME Desktop with a single simple application

is not yet achieved. (Printing multiple pages on one A4 sheet does not work too).
