I need to figure out how to annotate a PDF using linux.
I found this link http://www.gnurou.org/blog/2008/09/09/finally_real_pdf_annotating_under_linux with seemed to indicate that the best solution was to run an app under wine.
This is a project, I just want to be done with so… Ok… I’ll give it a go.
Apparently, I need to run pdf-xchange-viewer under wine which can be downloaded from here.
Installation instructions for installing under wine where found here.
So basically, I downloaded the zip file, setup up folder in my home directory and move the file there and unzipped the contents.
I should point out I’m running 10.04 and have Wine already installed.
Open up the Nautilus file browers
Right click the PDFXVwer.exe and select with Window windows program loader.
If this the first time your doing this your going to get a message along the lines of:
The file ‘/home/jonas/PdfExchangeViewerWineProgram/PDFXVwer.exe’ is not marked as executable. If this was downloaded or copied form an untrusted source, it may be dangerous to run. For more details, read about the executable bit.
If you get the message right click on PDVwer.exe again and click on properties.
Click on the permissions tab and at the bottom you’ll see a checkbox: Allow executing file as program.
Click the box so that it is checked and close.
Right click PDFXVwer.exe again and open using Wine.
It will take a few second to fire up, and you’ll be lead through a bunch of configuration options.
