PDF Typewriter for Linux

Well, from time to time you need to fill out a PDF form? Shame on the people and organizations that require such crappy solutions. You could print out the form, roll it into a typewriter, and fill out the form. Now you have to FAX it or scan it back into the computer. However, there is a better way! Just type on top of the PDF form using flpsed then print it out to a printer or export it as another PDF. Here’s how to install the software on your Ubuntu desktop:

sudo apt-get install flpsed

Now from a terminal type (or create a launcher):

flpsed Click on File/Import PDF. Open your PDF form. Click on the form and start typing. When you are done, click on File/Print or File/Export PDF.
