PDF Edit 0.4.1 !!!

Postby EMD » 2008-02-24 23:28

EDIT: Versions of PDF Edit 0.4.1 are in Debian's repositories (and have been for quite some time!), so I have removed the unofficial DEBs from this post.

==============

A new version of one of my favorite programs was just released today: PDF Edit 0.4.1 !!! I'm so happy I built a DEB for you all. For those of you who are smart enough not to trust my skills, here's a set of instructions to build PDF Edit on Debian Lenny:

First, I installed the packages necessary to build PDF Editor.

# apt-get install dh-make libboost-dev libboost-iostreams-dev

Then, I downloaded the tarball from Sourceforge and extracted the files:

$ tar -zxf pdfedit_0.4.1.tar.gz

Next, I entered the pdfedit-0.4.1/ directory and ran dh_make

$ cd pdfedit-0.4.1/
$ dh_make --createorig

I chose to create a single binary. After running dh_make, I ran:

$ export QTDIR=/usr/share/qt3
$ dpkg-buildpackage

That created the DEB package that I installed with:

# dpkg -i pdfedit_0.4.1-1_i386.deb

Enjoy!,
- EMD

EDIT: This post originally contained the following instructions, which were not necessary when I built a DEB for Etch:
