Post Good pdf view
What is a good pdf viewer? I really like Okular but I found that I can not select individual pages for printing. I often have to print weird sequences like pg1, 3,4,5,9, 11,12, etc. Is their some way to select pages for printing in Ocular?

Hi Fargo,

Lol...I seem to be replying to all your posts tonight. I installed Adobe Reader from the repos (acroread)...seems to do a good job.

I am a bit confused by this, because for me that action is taken care of in the print dialog box.

In general, BTW, we have a very good Wiki page on "PDF" that people might want to consult (or even contribute to, in a perfect world) before posting on this topic.

You may want to look at pdfedit (in the Debian repos). This application enables you to delete, import, and rearrange pages and do some text editing in addition to simply viewing the pdf file.

I find that plain ol' Adobe Reader works best for viewing pdf documents on the 'net with Firefox, although Okular works too. Adobe Reader is available from here: http://get.adobe.com/reader/

Adobe Reader (acroread) can also be installed by enabling the debian multimedia repo in synaptic.
(unable that repo after installing)

Cheers

Thanks. I did some online research and found Adobe made a linux version, but I couldn't find it in the repos. I just didn't know which one had it and it was late. I'll try that in the future if I can't find a way to print selected pages in Okular.

I looked through the print dialog box but could only find options like printing 'all', 'odd pages', or even pages', or pages from some number to the next number. But I couldn't find any way to select random pages. For example say I need to print pages 1,3,4,5, 8,9,12. In Adobe I would just highlight the pages in the sidebar hit the print button and print 'SELECTED' pages. I just couldn't find a 'selected' pages option in Okular. I really seems like they would have thought of that feature but I sure couldn't find it.

By the way, thanks for always mentioning the wiki and for having the link in your signature. I got to used to forums that didn't have such a thing and I never think of it. But I'm glad its there and often find what I need when I get directed there.
