I am running Ubuntu 14.04 and I can't find PDF Mod which is my favourite PDF-editing software.
I've downloaded the tarball from its website, extracted its contents, and
gone to the directory in terminal and run


but it told I needed

This too I downloaded the tarball for and extracted. Then I tried to configure this by going to said directory and running


but I got this message:

error: Your intltool is too old.  You need intltool 0.35.0 or later.

So yet again I downloaded the tarball for the latest stable version of intltool (0.50), extracted its contents, went to its directory and ran

and while this worked with no errors I don't know what I'm meant to do now.

It must be in the Ubuntu 14.04 repositories as it's displayed when I enter pdfmod in the search box. I've got version 0.9.1-7 (trusty) installed. – Sadi May 11 '14 at 11:17

Here is how I did it on 14.04. Just press Ctrl+Alt+T on your keyboard to open Terminal. When it opens, run the command(s) below:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install pdfmod

Whether you do just sudo apt-get install pdfmod or install from Ubuntu Apps/Software Center, you will end up with version 0.9.1. Since The latest release is 0.9.1 released March 3, 2011.
