+ https://askubuntu.com/questions/1028522/how-can-i-install-pdftk-in-ubuntu-18-04-bionic The major problem so far with Bionic Beaver is the loss of pdftk, a command-line program for combining, separating, and bates-stamping PDF files. There is a bug report about pdftk being removed from 18.04. At the moment, possible solutions include: downloading the older binaries and running dpkg to install them, installing a java-ized version or linking to a 16.04 docker-version (see this Q&A) or re-activating sources connected to the prior version of Xubuntu/Ubuntu to get access to pdftk from there.

I sometimes do some processing on PDFs if I think they are important, or I want to read them more conveniently. I was trying to explain my techniques to my students, recently, and I realized that I use a mixture of tools that are not at all obvious or easy to explain to someone not familiar with Unix.

Book scanning is the process of taking a physical book, and converting it to a scanned digital document, such as PDF or Djvu.

Scan Tailor is an interactive post-processing tool for scanned pages. It performs operations such as page splitting, deskewing, adding/removing borders, and others. You give it raw scans, and you get pages ready to be printed or assembled into a PDF or DJVU file. Scanning, optical character recognition, and assembling multi-page documents are out of scope of this project.
