comment convert single-page landscape pdf into rescaled double-page portrait pdf
This worked when commenting out p.scaleBy(math.sqrt(2)), which for some reason produced a blank output pdf. Fortunately, evince is smart enough to print the resulting split pdf in full A4 anyway, so this did answer my question and avoids using any explicit geometry, which is a really good thing. Note on ArchLinux: first line must be explicitly #!/usr/bin/env python2 as python3 is the default.

Folllowing a link from your link, I found a way to do it. I'm going to add it as a separate answer for clarity.

@Marco Thanks for the tip! Do you have a suggestion for an alternative?

comment convert single-page landscape pdf into rescaled double-page portrait pdf
From the man page and --help of pdfjam, I understand how to join two pdf files/pages/sheets into one. But I want to do the opposite: split one page into two. Is that actually possible?

What I actually want to do is the opposite of psnup: instead of putting several pages into one, I need to split one page into two.

comment Xmonad is not changing layouts
Also, if the problem persists, it might help if you posted your xmonad.hs which might help determine its cause.

comment Xmonad is not changing layouts
Did you try reloading xmonad without logging out, with <kbd>mod+Q</kbd>? Does the problem persist if you do this?

comment Passing values through pipes
Both man grep and grep --help tell you in the first lines that standard input is accepted by this command. This should be the case for any command accepting STDIN.

comment What is the best distro for Toshiba Satellite L10-205(old hardware) used mostly for development?
As long as he avoids Gnome, KDE and even Xfce, he should be fine. Of course it would be better to avoid desktop managers altogether and stick to a light window manager (I personally use xmonad) but he's new to Linux. Lxde is probably the lightest that will still be comfortable as a starting point, and Lubuntu installs it by default without asking too many questions.
