How to install Master PDF Editor under Kubuntu? I do not have it in the repositories.
Could somebody write it step by step?
Thanks in advance!

Well, then the best answer I could offer boils down to downloading the tarball file from master pdf editor website, unzipping it and then running the executable file from there. This boils down to the following steps in terminal:
wget http://code-industry.net/public/PDFEditor-1.7.91.x86_64.tar.gz tar -xvzf PDFEditor-1.7.91.x86-64.tar.gz cd /home/username/PDFEditor ./pdfeditor
If this fails, then I'm afraid I haven't the foggiest what I can say that will help you.
I had the same problem - the buy button in my Ubuntu Software Centre is greyed out and unclickable. To install other programs, I got around that by using the 'install' option in the menu bar, under File. But in this case, for Master PDF Editor, even that is greyed out!!
So the only option remaining for me was to use the terminal - but how?
This blog in Spanish provides accurate instructions.
I paraphrase its pith here:
for 32-bit Ubuntu, use
cd /opt && sudo wget http://code-industry.net/public/PDFEditor-1.7.01.i386.tar.gz && sudo tar -zxvf PDFEditor-1.7.01.i386.tar.gz && sudo rm PDFEditor-1.7.01.i386.tar.gz
for 64-bit Ubuntu, use
cd /opt && sudo wget http://code-industry.net/public/PDFEditor-1.7.01.x86_64.tar.gz && sudo tar -zxvf PDFEditor-1.7.01.x86_64.tar.gz && sudo rm PDFEditor-1.7.01.x86_64.tar.gz
I was having some issues with this, but then I went straight to the Master PDF site and was able to download the .deb file and installed through Ubuntu Software Center without issues:
Hope this might help someone!
