Ubuntu :: Pdftk Output File With Pages Extracts Same Size As Input File?

Apr 22, 2011

I am curious if perhaps I am doing something wrong extracting pages from a pdf doc using pdftk and creating a new file. I am only extracting the odd pages from the file and outputting them to a new file that is now only 20 pages instead of the input's 40 pages, yet the new output file is still 1.4Mb in size, the same as the original.

It seems strange to extract only half the pages of a large document and end up with a result that is the same size. how to streamline the resulting pdf's using pdftk?

BTW this is the command I am using, in case perhaps I am missing an option to optimize file size or something:

Code:
pdftk A=ch15.pdf cat A1-40odd output odd.pdf

Debian :: Input File For Pdftk?

Apr 21, 2011

This is a question for those that use pdftk. I've been using it for about the last year or so to combine manipulate PDFs and it is awesome. Until today, mostly what I've been using it for has been for less than five files. Today I have been working on a manual at work which consists of about 100 separate files with a total page count of 167. The pages are a mix of 8.5x11(inch) and 11x17(inch). The pages needed to be in a specific order, the only way I could think of to do this instead doing this all in the CLI, I created a text file which contained a list or sequence of the files. To make it easier for me to read and group, I first put each file on a separate line.

chapter1_separation_page.pdf
file1.pdf
file2.pdf

Software :: Pdftk 'File Size Limit Exceeded' Error?

Apr 12, 2010

I downloaded pdftk 1.41 fromand installed on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4, 32 bitI am primarily using this utility to uncompress pdf files to remove the 'Flate' compressionIt works good with small pdfsHowever, when i use to uncompress pdf files of size 35MB or more, the uncompressed output file grows up to 2GB and then the uncompression fails with error:"File size limit exceeded"I can concatenate two files with output file size upto 3GB in size, so 2GB is not the limitation at the linux level

Server :: NFS Large File Copies Fail - Error Writing To File: Input/output Error?

Jun 27, 2009

I recently upgraded my file/media server to Fedora 11. After doing so, I can no longer copy large files to the server. The files begin to transfer, but typically after about 1gb of the file has transferred, the transfer stalls and ultimately fails with the message:

"Error writing to file: Input/output error"

I've run out of ideas as to what could cause this problem. I have tried the following:

1. Different NFS versions: NFS3 and NFS4
2. Tried copying the files to different physical drives on the server.
3. Tried copying the files from different physical drives on the client.
4. Tried different rsize and wsize block sizes when mounting the NFS share
5. Tried copying the files via a different protocol. SSH in this case. The file transfers are always successful when I use SSH.

Regardless of what I do, the result is the same. The file transfers always fail after approximately 1gb.

Some other notes.

1. Both the client and the server are running Fedora 11 kernel 2.6.29.5-191.fc11.x86_64

I am out of ideas. Has anyone else experienced something similar?

Ubuntu :: Cannot Open File: Input/output Error

Nov 11, 2010

I just received a 1TB external(Western Digital) hard drive(NTFS) for backup purposes. I'm using an Ubuntu Live CD, and an external hard drive dock. I am transferring over esata and am receiving the error:

Code:

Cannot open file: input/output error

Seems strange that it said "open". At any rate only about 60 of the 200+ GB were able to be transferred over...this won't do. I have tried to copy via CLI using

Code:

cp -r

and received the same issue. For clarification I am attempting to transfer from a mounted partition onto the mounted external.

Ubuntu :: Canot Remove File Input/output Error

Apr 8, 2010

I got a new HDD like a Storage on my Ubuntu ,it is formated as ext3 and i am able to mount it ,but sometimes while downloading from FTP ,when the session broke Ubuntu crates some ./afternature.mp4 Input/output error ,which i can see on "ls -l" ,and that causes great troubles to me ,because i can not copy or write on that disk another file with the same one which is created like this ,these error are gone only if i format the hdd .

My mounting command is "mount /dev/hdb3 /tmp/hd ext3 rw 0 0" So is that possible to remove these error without formatting the disk . PS:I did a lot of search for that error ,on unix forums also here but i didn`t find a concrete answer ,i found a thread which is for that case but removing with inode is impossible because on ls -l i`m not receiving the inode .

OpenSUSE :: Nothing Provides Pdftk Needed By Pdftk-qgui-0.1.9.2-0.pm.1.1.x86_86?

Aug 16, 2010

pdftk could be installed in the Suse 11.0 version, and worked very well. I love it. But recently, after I install Suse11.3 on my Dell desktop (64 bits), everything works fine except the pdftk. When I am trying to install it from Yast, it warns:nothing provides pdftk needed by pdftk-qgui-0.1.9.2-0.pm.1.1.x86_86, and gives me two conflict resolutions: 1. do not install it2. break pdftk-qgui by ignoring some of its dependencies.Obviously, none of them are the correct answer .

Programming :: Splitting A File Based On The Values Read From An Input File?

Jul 27, 2010

I am splitting a file based on the values read from an input file. The below one is the script.

1)How do I add the header which is present in the original file to the new split files created?(For eg. pharmacyf conatins header as table column names. The new files created (ODS.POS.$pharmacyid.$tablename.$CURRENT_DATE.dat) are without the header).

2) Also the script is creating 0 byte files for the pharmacyids which are not available in the intial file? Can this be avoided?

for pharmacyf in *
do
tablename=`echo $pharmacyf |cut -f4 -d'.' `
while read pharmacyid
do
grep -w $pharmacyid $pharmacyf >> $OUT/ODS.POS.$pharmacyid.$tablename.$CURRENT_DATE.dat
done< inputfile
done

CentOS 5 Networking :: Allow The User Only See The Size Of The File, And Not The File + Symbolic Links?

Feb 23, 2009

I'm researching about symbolic links been used with samba / CIFS:I'd like that the user that uses a MS-Windows OS could see my shared folder on CentOS 5 and the symbolic links that are inside this folder. Well, it works but, the user will see that the size of the file is bigger than the real file. Apparently, CIFS gets the size of the symbolic link (aproxim.32K) and add it to the size of the file.Example 1: 100KB file, used with shared folder, MS-Windows's user will see 100KBExample 2: 100KB file, used with symbolic link inside a shared folder, MS-Windows's user will see 132KB. (Sym link + size of file)Is there a way to allow the user only see the size of the file, and not the file + symbolic links ?

General :: Limit On File Size - Doesn't Allow User To Create File Which Are Greater Than 100Kb

Jun 13, 2011

I was just testing specifying limit on file size to a user and have added the following to /etc/security/limits.conf bob soft fsize 100 This basically should have said not to allow bob to create anyfile greater than 100Kb in size.

But the interesting thing is, if bob already has any file which is greater than 100Kb in size, it even doesn't allow to log him into the system both from console and SSH. Also nothing is logged in logs.. How do I configure it so that, bob can login to the system even though he has any file greater than 100Kb (but doesn't allow him to create file which are greater than 100Kb) ??

Software :: Gunzip Truncates Dd.gz File To Zero Size .dd File?

Jun 18, 2010

I am using DD to backup entire system partitions and now I am trying to restore one. The resulting disk image from my buggy process has zero bytes. D'oh.It apparently thinks the image was trailing garbage and ignores it. It deletes the original file and replaces it with a zero byte .dd file. I have the original copy of the image in a dd.gz file. It's 6.3 GB so it may still contain the data.How do I get the original image back without destroying it again?

Programming :: Sed - Save Output To File With Filename From Content Of Another File?

Feb 28, 2011

My employer issues pdf files with everyones work schedules. I copy the content and save it as plain text in a file called unformatted (hope to be able to automate this step someday). Im working on a SED script that reduces unformatted to only display what I want to see and saves the result in a file Ive named formatted. After that I have to manually copy formatted and save it with that days date as a filename e.g. 2011-02-25 or whatever day is scheduled in the pdf, for use on a mobile device (Nokia N900). I noticed that the date occurs on certain lines in the file so I added a line like:

sed -n 's/^Date: (201[1-9])/([0-1][0-9])/([0-3][0-9]).*/1-2-3/p' < unformatted >theDate
That creates a file theDate with the date in it that I wish to use as the filename for this particular instance. So I would like to skip the file formatted all together and have the sed- script write to a new file using the content of the Date as a filename, but how do I make that happen? And of course it would be more elegant if I could skip the intermediate theDate file as well.

im trying to output a list of running processes via a shell script. At the moment i got this which outputs the processes to a text file called out.

echo $(ps aux) >>out

The problem is though, the processes are all just one big block of text which makes it hard to read. Does anyone know how to sort the output to a text file so that it prints to the text file at 1 process per line? I know its probably simple but im very new to linux.

Ubuntu :: Print An .odg File To Multiple Pages?

Jul 19, 2011

Are there any reliable ways to print libreoffice or openoffice drawings to multiple pages. I have two drawings I designed for 11" x 22" sheets, and I'd like to print one of them to 4x or at most 6x 8 1/2" x 11" sheets, without reduction.

So far, when I've tried this using "print to multiple sheets," the results have been erratic, and have basically wasted paper and ink with no usable results.

I can't even preview this.

I am using the old trick of creating a duplicate file, and creating for duplicate slides within it, making each slide one group, and using the alignment settings to make each slide match one corner of the original image. It works, but it is kinda clunky.
