PDFtk Server

PDFtk is a command-line tool commonly used for server-side processing of PDFs.

Before using it

After installation, this snap will work without further configuration.

For a better user experience with this tool, you probably want to set up an alias to make the command shorter. Simply execute

snap alias pdftk-snap pdftk

However, due to Snap's strict confinement, you can only access PDF files that are in your home folder.

If you want to access PDF files located on removable media, you will need to connect the removable-media interface to this snap. Simply run

snap connect pdftk-snap:removable-media

How to use it

For a better comprehension of the tool, run

pdftk-snap.pdftk --help

or after you set up the alias

pdftk --help
