You might want to actually ask a question... And a please / thank you would be polite. And use a decent and informative thread title.

But I presume you don't have pdftoppm installed? It's in the poppler-utils package. And if you do not have this available via RHN / yum, you should not be runnign RHEL in the first place.

Similar to this:
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...er-4175448661/

..where you had a printer issue, and we had to keep asking for information. Did you load the package(s) mentioned by acid_kewpie? How? Where did you get them?

Also, AGAIN, unless you've started PAYING FOR RHEL, you will not be able to install things via repository. You said before you were going to load CentOS: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...or-4175454641/

Did you, or are you now paying for your (old) installation of RHEL? If so, you should be easily able to load the poppler software and all of the dependencies via a simple yum command. And, all of this is already covered in the Red Hat knowledgebase...which, since you're paying, you have access to.

You need to 'install' a new pkg, not 'update' it; Linux is good, but its not psychic
Code:
yum install poppler-utils

So where did you get the name from; does the manufacturer provide a special rpm containing the driver?
Is it specified to run on the version of Linux you have?
They should also provide instructions.
