Split and merge PDFs – part 2

A while ago I wrote a post named Split and merge PDFs with pdftk. Unfortunately, pdftk seems no longer to be maintained for Fedora 21. So we have to use another alternative – poppler-utils:

Install the package with:

..and you can use them to both split and merge files. poppler-utils contains a list of tools that you can use to manipulate PDFs:

  • pdfdetach — lists or extracts embedded files (attachments)
  • pdffonts — font analyzer
  • pdfimages — image extractor
  • pdfinfo — document information
  • pdfseparate — page extraction tool
  • pdftocairo — pdf to png/jpeg/pdf/ps/eps/svg converter using cairo
  • pdftohtml — pdf to html converter
  • pdftoppm — pdf to ppm/png/jpeg image converter
  • pdftops — pdf to postscript (ps) converter
  • pdftotext — text extraction
  • pdfunite — document merging tool
