Pdfs how? [solved]

Post by Thrice » Fri Jul 27, 2007 23:58

I have a bunch of scanned images I need to combine into 1 pdf file. Is there an easier way to do it than through OO?

sure, not through OO, but pdftk

emerge pdftk

(I hope gcc was compiled with gcj support in sabayon, otherwise this will take some time)

edit:

with scanned images you mean pdf files ? or jpegs ?

for jpegs I have no idea :oops:
search for 'pictures merge linux' or something in google ...

pdftk manipulates only pdf files? Hmm the images are in jpg. I think gimp can turn them into pdf, but it'd be nice if I didn't have to convert them first.

edit: yeah i've been googling for a while now & nothing.

simple, use the command line:

Code: Select all

convert file1.jpeg file2.png file3.jpg bigfile.pdf
