This short post is about writing in a pdf file without having any pdf editor in the machine (OS: ubuntu).
The machine should be having some image editor (gimp, inkscape etc). I have gimp installed on my machine.
I have used this method in order to fill a form in pdf format. Since I do not have pdf editor I opt this method to do required changes in a pdf file.
I am sure that a pdf editor would be a better option to make changes in pdf file, but using this method I was able to make my signature as well.
- Open pdf file in image editor, e.g. xyz.pdf
- Make changes (text) in the opened file using text option. OR whatever changes you want to make using options in image editor.
- Save the file in png format, e.g. xyz.png.
- convert the png file to pdf file using command:
convert xyz.png myfile.pdf
