Hi...

From what I see here, it appears that Foxit Reader might offer the ability to convert documents to PDF, although I don't know if this could be done with a right mouse click. If you just want to use the free version, just click the button that says "Free Download" in the orange box.

In terms of a frontend for pdftk , I did find the two entries below, however, I don't know if they'll have what you need or if they will work with your distribution and version of Linux....

https://apps.ubuntu.com/cat/applicat...atty/pdfchain/

http://www.paehl.de/pdf/gui_pdftk.html

EDIT: The first link references a frontend named "pdfchain," which I noticed is available in the Ubuntu repositories for version 14.04. It might also be for 16.04 or other versions, as well.

Let us know how it goes...

Regards...
