I have a Brainstorm, for a Linux programmer
 
My Brainstorm is, A programmer that could take all the :

pdftops
pdftotext
pstopdf
etc
etc ....

And make a Gui-frontend to run these apps, that a Newbie could use.

The pdfeditor doesn't do the job, I mention it to three other people that have tried it and they said that they can't get it to edit a pdf file correctly.

Code:

pdftops input.pdf
same goes for the rest ... I know it's hard, but try it.

I'm not a programmer and haven't the foggiest as to where to start.

H_TeXMeX_H 04-17-2008 03:44 PM

Open a terminal, examples of terminals include: rxvt, xterm, konsole, genome-terminal, Terminal, and many more ...

Then type in that command that I wrote, except replace 'input.pdf' with the name of the input pdf, if it's not in the current directory, then you must include the full path to it. Use the 'ls' command to list files in the current directory, and 'cd' to change directories.

Read the RUTE, ASAP when you have time. Start with the 'basic commands section'.

I know all about howto run the commands from the command line, I was just looking at a standpoint of a Newbie.
