No idea, I hardly ever touch PDFs.
If you require certain software to be packaged as RPM let me know.

Hi scarface,
pdftk is the right application for you, it`s working onto the command line. Smile
Test the package, if it works for you.

Just seen it by our friendly guys from PCLOS http://code-industry.net/free-pdf-editor.php

thanks nux,

can you package pdftk and pdfchain (gui) i think since they are not in the repo.

I'll try, but pdftk requires some gcc bits that are missing from EL7 (java stuff). I'll try to build the extra gcc packages required, but it's a slippery slope, no guarantees.

thanks nux,

if you can't repo it due to gcc requirements no worries...i'll just encrypt zip it instead.

thanks again for the assist. still enjoying 6.5 and afraid to move to 7 since you and symbianflo don't like it...i follow your leads. Wink

I actually love 7 quite alot. Just depends on your like/dislike of GNOME 3 I noticed. I quite enjoy it, but its clearly not for everyone. Best bet is to fire up a VM of 7 and give it a go. For me the cleaned up system (systemd and pulseaudio for starters) were what kept me off of RHEL6 on my main machine here. 7 is rocking on it. Unfortunately, it seems that the alternative DEs are limited to the major guys (Cinnamon, Mate, XFCE). The lessers are in need of alot of extra packages. Eventually I suppose I should roll out RPMs of em, but its not a big deal to get openbox or windowmaker running on here. Especially without proper good PA support. Such a deal breaker for me.

Since there seems to be somewhat of an interest, especially from people coming from search engines, EL7 RPMs here
