How can I install pdfcrop in Ubuntu? I tried sudo apt-get install pdfcrop but I got the error message:

E: Unable to locate package pdfcrop

pdfcrop is provided by the texlive-extra-utils package in all currently supported versions of Ubuntu. Open the terminal and type:

sudo apt-get install texlive-extra-utils  

Type pdfcrop /path/to/pdf_document from the terminal to run pdfcrop, and a new cropped pdf document will be created alongside the original pdf document.
