Hello, and thanks for simplifying the use of Sopdf. I tried to download it, but failled to use it. Maybe this is because of what I want to use it for : I would like to reformat Google (image scanned) book-length PDFs. Could someone tell me if it is feasable on old rare degraded spotty Google PDFs? I have aready tried other tools from this forum but did not get satisfying results.

Sebl,

I don't see any reason in particular why sopdf shouldn't have worked with your Google scanned books, though I personally find I get better results with pdflrf for scans.

You can find it here.
It would be nice to get Nathan's working, but this might help narrow down the problems.
Works like a charm!

Thanks a lot,

Ras

Thanks Frabjous.

I'll give PDFLRF a try.

By jove, I think I've got it!

The "fit height" does what I want it to do, Hooray

It still bugs me to no friggin' end that I can't do this simple task with Acrobat, only a mock-crop. It's not like it's (Acrobat) a cheap program (even if I'm not the one paying for it).

I finally got around to compiling Nathan's GUI for 32 bit linux systems. It's attached. Just extract and drop both files into your searched path for executable files. (E.g., ~/bin) Run soPDF_Frontend for the GUI, or just sopdf for the commandline tool.

I'm just including the binaries, since the source code is identical to that for the 64 bit linux version, posted above.

Let me know if this works for you.

Great job! Have you considered uploading the soPDF + soPDF GUI Linux source to SourceForge? Then others can build packages. Such a useful tool should be in Ubuntu repos IMO.

$ sudo aptitude search sopdf

I'm working on the Mac OS X version right now. Since I got myself a Macbook Pro 17" in January but I was busy since then working on iOS applications. Now I'll try to make more desktop programs
