Project ID: 5831


This COPR repository is deprecated since October 2021, because a GCJ-free port of PDFtk has gotten part of the regular Fedora 33+ and EPEL 7+ repositories. The new package can be installed using yum install pdftk-java explicitly, alternatively existing pdftk users of this COPR repository are auto-migrated to pdftk-java when running yum update the next time.

If PDF is electronic paper, then pdftk is an electronic staple-remover, hole-punch, binder, secret-decoder-ring, and X-Ray-glasses. Pdftk is a simple tool for doing everyday things with PDF documents. Keep one in the top drawer of your desktop and use it to:

  • Merge PDF Documents
  • Split PDF Pages into a New Document
  • Decrypt Input as Necessary (Password Required)
  • Encrypt Output as Desired
  • Burst a PDF Document into Single Pages
  • Report on PDF Metrics, including Metadata and Bookmarks
  • Uncompress and Re-Compress Page Streams
  • Repair Corrupted PDF (Where Possible)

Pdftk is also an example of how to use a library of Java classes in a stand-alone C++ program. Specifically, it demonstrates how GCJ and CNI allow C++ code to use iText's (itext-paulo) Java classes.

Installation Instructions

You need to have yum-plugin-copr installed. Afterwards you can run:

# yum copr enable robert/pdftk

In case of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 (or with derivates like CentOS 7 or Scientific Linux 7) the GCJ related copr repository is needed additionally:

# yum copr enable robert/gcj
