I'd like to print a single page PDF document on 2 or 4 pages.

Is there a way to do that on Ubuntu 12.04?

This should do the job: command line PDF poster printer

To install, use apt-get as follows: sudo apt-get install pdfposter

You can try Razor enter image description here

  1. First Print your PDF to File ( As Image , as png or jpeg )
  2. Then use this tool to print it over to as many pages as you wish

This technique is called Image OR Document Stitching.

Source : Document on multiple pages
