Depends on  KDE 4.x

Submitted:  Mar 6 2009

Description:

Remember when you could setup a complex document processing chain in kprinter? I call this the good old KDE 3 times. Using this feature it was possible to chain commands like psnup, psselect, pdftops etc. together in order to print a document exactly the way you wanted to. A feature missed on windows and a major selling point for KDE to me.

Well, KDE 4 has no such feature any more. In fact there is a minimal feature to print multiple pages on one page, but this feature is broken. It prints the pages completely wrong and overlapped. This was the reason I wrote this service menu.

Using this service menu you can print 4 beamer slides (PDF or PostScript) per page already sorted so you get the first page on top when you just hit print. It's a shame that I had to write a service menu for that and that the awesome document processing framework of KDE 3 got dumped. I ask: Why-oh-why is this? I don't consider KDE 4 final without this feature.

Dependencies:
pdftops
ps2pdf
psnup
psselect
kdialog
okular

 Nice feature, but...

... I have to rename path and file in order to remove spaces, make-4-page.sh can't read them.

And... when it can read a path and successfully edits a pdf, it opens okular with just one blank page.

The strange thing is, with some PDFs it just does not work. E.g. I cant get this PDF zo work right: http://www.ifs.tuwien.ac.at/~strodl/lecture/03_dp_OAIS.pdf

However, OS X does manage to print this PDF like I want to, so I have to print such PDFs on my mothers machine. :(

Maybe it's because of I have to convert it to PostScript because there are no tools like psnup or psselect for PDF that I would be aware of.

Be sure that psutils are installed (psnup, psselect...). Launch the script in console to see if some programs are missing.

 Mime type

Thanks for this script!

However, you have to replace "file -bi" by "file -b --mime-type" to be sure to get "application/pdf" instead of "application/pdf; charset=binary".

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
