LINUX XOURNAL PDF

Somehow, despite all the issues with proprietary clients and the history of security issues with Acrobat, PDFs have become the de facto standard for your average print-ready document shared around the office. Sure, people might use some kind of open document format or a cloud editor if they intend to edit a document, but if the goal is to print the document or lock its contents in place, most people these days will export it to a PDF. Even Adobe supplied a proprietary and somewhat outdated port of its Acrobat Reader for Linux. Some distributions also offer the ability to create a special software printer that converts any print job sent to it into a local PDF file. The problem comes when people want to turn read-only print-ready PDFs into read-write documents you need to modify.

Somehow, despite all the issues with proprietary clients and the history of security issues with Acrobat, PDFs have become the de facto standard for your average print-ready document shared around the office.

Sure, people might use some kind of open document format or a cloud editor if they intend to edit a document, but if the goal is to print the document or lock its contents in place, most people these days will export it to a PDF. Even Adobe supplied a proprietary and somewhat outdated port of its Acrobat Reader for Linux. Some distributions also offer the ability to create a special software printer that converts any print job sent to it into a local PDF file.

The problem comes when people want to turn read-only print-ready PDFs into read-write documents you need to modify. As more people work in paperless offices with strictly digital documents and fewer people own fax machines, you are more likely to find official documents like contracts show up in your INBOX in PDF format.

These contracts likely were created with a proprietary PDF editor tool, and they usually have blanks for you to fill in and often signature lines so you can add a real signature. Then I discovered Xournal. This program is pretty common, and you should be able to install it in any major Linux distribution, but otherwise, you can download the software from its Sourceforge page.

The particularly nice thing about Xournal is that it can import PDFs and display them like any other document, but because Xournal is designed for note-taking, you can pick its text or pencil tools and type or draw directly on the PDF! This means when you get a contract with a bunch of blanks to fill in, you can select the text tool from the toolbar, select the area where you want to type, and then fill in all those blanks. Then when you get to the signature page, you can zoom in on the signature section, select the pencil tool and then sign with your mouse!

Trap allows you to catch signals and execute code when they occur. Signals are asynchronous notifications that are sent to your script when certain events occur. Most of these notifications are for events that you hope never happen, such as an invalid memory access or a bad system call. There are also "user" events available that are never generated by the system that you can generate to signal your script.
