comment How to properly play .mkv files?
Does something like "mplayer -vo xv -fs -zoom filename.mkv" from the terminal help? -vo xv selects a "default video driver" and the rest fullscreens your video. You might also want to man mplayer for subtitle and audio/video track switches :P

Thank you for such a thorough answer! This is a great solution. The only other solutions I was aware of included either .NET or something equally horrible, or wading through dialogs in Adobe Acrobat (which I can't afford anyway). This is even scriptable!

I would indeed be happy with a LaTeX solution. Can you post some details below?

Hm, PDFtk doesn't seem to be able to do it. pyPdf has many methods for extracting metadata, but doesn't seem to be able to write them back into the document.

The pdf-import extension seems busted for OpenOffice.org 3.2. Importing (into Draw and Writer) gives an "I/O error."

I don't actually think PDF Edit can change the page numbers. I tried and haven't succeeded, in any case.
