How to upgrade pdfsam from 1.1.4-1 version included in ubuntu sofware center to 2.2.1 version, either the basic or enhanced version, in Ubuntu 12.04?
I only found a possible solution here but it is for ubuntu 9.10 and the file system is different.
Download the PDFsam Zip archive, extract it wherever you want, make the jar-file executable and then start it.
Open a terminal and paste the following commands.
wget 'http://downloads.sourceforge.net/project/pdfsam/pdfsam/2.2.1/pdfsam-2.2.1-out.zip?r=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.pdfsam.org%2F%3Fpage_id%3D32&ts=1347454695&use_mirror=freefr' unzip -d pdfsam pdfsam-2.2.1-out.zip\?r=http:%2F%2Fwww.pdfsam.org%2F\?page_id=32\&ts=1347454695\&use_mirror=freefr cd pdfsam java -jar pdfsam-2.2.1.jar
you can download it from this link : http://www.practicatechnical.com/files/pdfsam_2.2.1.deb
and from the downloaded directory you can install with
sudo dpkg -i pdfsam_2.2.1.deb
hope that helps :)
The file from my website is listed above. I've just posted a slightly newer one: http://www.practicatechnical.com/files/pdfsam_2.2.2_all.deb
