pdftk in Debian Buster [SOLVED]

Postby kcbagr » 2019-05-28 16:52

Regarding bug report 892539: https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugrepo ... bug=892539

Has there been any progress on this? Will there be a way to get pdftk installed in Debian Buster?

Is anyone using pdftk in Debian Buster and how did you get it installed?

Perhaps you should try actually reading the bug report you have linked.

From my buster system:
Code: Select all
E485:~$ apt install -s pdftk     
NOTE: This is only a simulation!
      apt needs root privileges for real execution.
      Keep also in mind that locking is deactivated,
      so don't depend on the relevance to the real current situation!
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
The following additional packages will be installed:
  ca-certificates-java default-jre-headless java-common libapache-pom-java libbcprov-java
  libcommons-lang3-java libcommons-parent-java openjdk-11-jre-headless pdftk-java
Suggested packages:
  default-jre libbcprov-java-doc libcommons-lang3-java-doc libnss-mdns fonts-dejavu-extra
  fonts-ipafont-gothic fonts-ipafont-mincho fonts-wqy-microhei | fonts-wqy-zenhei fonts-indic
  xpdf-utils
The following NEW packages will be installed:
  ca-certificates-java default-jre-headless java-common libapache-pom-java libbcprov-java
  libcommons-lang3-java libcommons-parent-java openjdk-11-jre-headless pdftk pdftk-java

I do not have Debian Buster installed. I am waiting for full stable release. Your simulation was exactly what I was hoping someone could confirm on Buster. Thank you. I'm not sure how reading the bug report would confirm that though. The bug reports last comment was from last year and I was to confirm it's a-okay in Buster for the stable release.

The last comment confirms that pdftk-java is the replacement and the links in the message show that package is in buster now.

Anyway, please mark the thread [SOLVED].
