The gs example The gs command you're running above has a trailing $1 which is typically meant for passing command line arguments into a script. So I'm not sure what you actually tried but I'm guessing that you tried to put that command into a script, script.sh: #!/bin/bash gs -sOutputFile=output.pdf \ -q -dNOPAUSE -dBATCH -dSAFER \ ...

From http://blog.chewearn.com/2008/12/18/rearrange-pdf-pages-with-pdftk/ pdftk A=src.pdf B=blank.pdf cat A1 B1 A2-end output res.pdf Hope you like this script, just save it as pdfInsertBlankPageAt.sh, add execute permissions, and run. ./pdfInsertBlankPageAt 5 src.pdf res.pdf #!/bin/bash if [ $# -ne 3 ] then echo "Usage example: ./pdfInsertBlankPageAt ...

I'd do it with pdftk. pdftk A=all.pdf cat Aodd output odd.pdf pdftk A=all.pdf cat Aeven output even.pdf

I decided to write a simple script to generate a tex file that includes eps file arguments (using \includegraphics[width=\columnwidth]{arg1.eps} ...). Then using latex, and dvipdf I can get a pdf file with multiple eps files on a page.

Use a command like: gs -sDEVICE=pdfwrite -dNOPAUSE -dBATCH -dSAFER -sOutputFile=sin_800.pdf *.eps

Apparently it's not possible to keep the PDF metadata when using ghostscript. Here is a workaround which first saves the metadata to a file using pdftk, then compresses the file with ghostscript and finally writes back the metadata also using pdftk. INPUTPDF=<input_file> OUTPUTPDF=<output_file> TMPPDF=$(mktemp) METADATA=$(mktemp) # save ...

I merged a handful of pdf's into a single document using pdftk *.pdf output all.pdf. So that leaves you with a converting EPS documents to PDF: How to convert PDF to EPS?

You can check-out pdfdraw from mupdf (package mupdf-tools under Debian/Debian-derivatives). From its description: pdfdraw will render a PDF document to image files. The supported image formats are: pgm, ppm, pam and png. Select the pages to be rendered by specifying a comma separated list of ranges and individual page numbers for example: ...

This is the pseudo solution I used, now. My editor didn't seem to care whether to receive eps or tiff files, so I rendered all svgs with the target resolution and size, as it was impossible to get a decent result with eps files (as noted in the comments this is due to technical limitations of the eps format). This can be done by opening the svg directly in ...

I found a script here that can do this. It requires gs which you seem to have but also pdftk. You have not mentioned your distribution but on Debian-based systems, you should be able to install it with apt-get pdftk You can find RPMs for it here. Once you have installed pdftk, save the script as graypdf.sh and run like so: ./greypdf.sh input.pdf It ...

There are multiple ways to get rid of the OCRed text in the file. Export the scanned images from the PDF and recombine them. You can use pdfimages for the extraction (from the poppler-utils package) and convert (from imagemagick) to convert them back: pdfimages toc.pdf toctmp convert toctmp*.pbm newtoc.pdf Print to PDF (with PDF support from cups-pdf) ...

Assuming you use Bash, put the same thing in both ~/.bashrc and ~/.bash_profile. That's what I had to do, at least. Assuming you're using fink, and by all indications of how you've set everything up, it looks like you do.

You are missing the right font information. Your Fontmap.GS file state that /TimesNewRoman is an alias for /TimesNewRomanPSMT. But the latter is not available in the same file. Since you have the ttf files in a directory, you only need to update the fontmap.GS adding these lines: /TimesNewRomanPSMT ...

In case anyone else comes across this: I found this link more helpful. It lists different versions, and then you can download a convenient *.tar.gz to unpack / install. I did wget on the URL for the link ghostscript-9.10.tar.gz. For some reason it saved to a file called download, but it is a .tar.gz. So I unpacked with tar -zxvf download cd into the new ...

I recently became involved in a legal matter, for which I wrote a PDF "Bates-stamping" script, pdfBatesStamp.sh. usage excerpt # "Bates-stamp" a PDF file with text (only; images aren't supported). Uses # ghostscript (ps2pdf) and pdftk. # # The output (Bates-stamped) file is put in the same directory, with "_BATES" # appended to its name, thusly: # ...
