In the past I had a printer that had the booklet format option that would print the document two pages at a time ordered in a way that folding the whole printout would produce a booklet, half the size of the paper which could be stapled in the middle.
My current printer does not support this feature. I would like to use some utility or script to convert an A4 pdf to an A5 booklet one.
I found this page but I'm getting an error :
pdfjam ERROR: can't find pdflatex!
How do I get past this issue? Does anybody know of any other solution?
I'm on Ubuntu 12.10 AMD64
sudo apt-get install texlive-latex-base. The Acrobat Reader has a software booklet option, but your printer should support duplex printing for that.
pdfjam ERROR: LaTeX package pdfpages.sty is not installed. It doesn't seem to be a very stable package. I'm resorting to another solution.
apt-file search pdfpages.styshows that you need to install
