Since I upgraded to Ubuntu 11.10 pdfcrop will not work. It runs and produces a file, but the product is exactly the same as the original, with no cropping. Has anyone else noticed this? and does anyone know of a fix?

pdfcrop (v0.4b) relies on pdfedit & will silently do nothing if pdfedit is not installed. You can install pdfedit as:

sudo apt-get install pdfedit
