glabels has both a GUI editor (glabels-3) for creating .glabels files, and a glabels-3-batch program for printing previously created .glabels from the command line or script. It supports "mail-merge" functionality from various file formats, including CSV. The .glabels file is just gzip-compressed XML. I created a simple file with glabels-3 (one big text ...

Foxit Reader works just fine in Wine without all the tinkering and patching needed to make Adobe work. There is also a native Linux version of Foxit, but it lacks most of the advanced features and is thus just another simple PDF viewer. Download from: http://download.cnet.com/Foxit-Reader/3000-18497_4-10313206.html Foxit's own pages won't let you choose the ...

You can try enscript. It has many features, many of which do not interest you, but you can set a font-size and media size. It does not centre nor justify, but you can visualise the result with ghostview and amend your data. Try this: cat <<\! >>~/.enscriptrc # Media: name width height llx lly urx ury bounding box lowleft upright # 57mm x 32 mm ...

You can create a simple bit of PostScript with some grey text and then wrap that into a pdf eg: #!/bin/bash text=${1?missing text to show} angle=45 # in degrees counterclockwise from horizontal grey=0.75 # 0 is black 1 is white ps2pdf - - <<! %!PS /cm { 28....

epdfview and/or zathura. I use both. epdview is fast and simple and easy to use, but I've found that there are some PDFs that it just can't display properly (or at all, sometimes). zathura so far has been able to display everything I've thrown at it, and it's very fast. It doesn't, however, have the usual menus and buttons that most GUI programs have. ...

If you're comfortable with Python, then pyPDF2 may be an option. For example, it is used by the PDF Shuffler GUI program. Its functionality fits your requirements well, and in the "sample code" directory of the project there's one file which shows how to merge separate PDFs into one. Caveat: I've never worked with it myself.
