How do I install a PDF editor in Ubuntu 16.04?
You don really need to install a PDF editor to edit most of your PDF documents on Ubuntu. Ubuntues with the LibreOffice suite. Using LibreOffice Draw you can import and edit PDF documents. In case LibreOffice Draw isn what youre looking for there are plenty of PDF editors available for Ubuntu I prefer to use Master PDF Editor. Open Terminal using CTRL + ALT + T and give the belowmands wget code sudo dpkg -i master-pdf-editor-*.deb code The first line would download the installer for you while the second line would install it. In case you face any issue during the installation especially unmet dependencies run the belowmand sudo apt -f install code Thanks for the A2A italic Muthu Anand italic user 2759425 -) italic
What is the best PDF editing tool for Ubuntu Linux?
I was searching for the right PDF Editor for the Ubuntu for a very long time. Various people rmended Master PDF which has a great U.I but lacks important features like Concatenation and splitting of multiple PDFs (which I often require). Finally my search ended with PDF Studio by Quoppa. The U.I. of the software is very different from Adobe Acrobat 11 and you may take a day to understand and find the features youmonly require post which you would be good to go. Here is the detailedparisons of the features and prices of different versions of PDF Studio and Adobe Acrobat. (Picked up from PDF Studio's website) n nHope this helps!
Can Linux become an everyday system like OS X or Windows?
A couple years ago I decided that I was going to go down the Linux is my only desktop road. So before I jumped fully in I installed Ubuntu in a virtual machine on my Mac and tried to run it exclusively for everything. Email entertainment etc. It was aplete bust. I was extremely used to the conveniences that OSX provides. There wasn shit out there for email clients that also integrated with a calendar. There were a lot of options but they all sucked bad. I spent HOURS trying to get things set up like I wanted which admittedly was what I was used to on the OSX clients. And just stop it before you say just use the browser for gmail and calendarit doesn work for me and I hate their interface. Oh and install a printer or any other peripheral? Pffftget ready to search and search for obscure drivers that you have to COMPILE and may just never work. And if you need to use the microsoft office suite youre just SOL. Open office is fine if everyone else uses open office otherwise youre screwed. I LOVE Linux. I really do. Ive developed on Linux for almost 2 years and am pretty handy at administering servers if I do say so myself. But as an everyday system? Forget about it. Not even close unless you adjust your expectations and have a ton of time on your hands. I remember hearing people say that Linux has finally be a full fledged system that can replace Windows 1+ YEARS AGO. It wasn then and it not now (at least for me). Will it ever? Im not sure and I don really think I care that much. Can it ever? Sure as long as someone puts a ton of support and money behind it. If youre a casual user who only browses the internet and checks your email account sure it fine i.e. chromebook. But need to do anything more than that? Good luck!!
What are the most useful gems to use in Rails?
RubyGems were developed to simplify and accelerate the stages of the application creation deployment and library connection. Utilizing this package manager for Ruby saves you time as you get ready-made solutions to almost any task instead of writing the functions from scratch. Each gem contains a particular element of functionality including all related files. Unfortunately they aren structured in any way so in order to find ruby gems it better to use a regular search engine and the required key words (check GitHub s ). Our dedicated development team also actively employs Ruby Gems in the process of software development. Here is the top of the most popular and useful ruby gems according to our experience GeoCoder s . Being able to connect through itself over 4 APIs this Ruby gem implements both the direct and reverse geocoding by IP address geographical coordinates and even real physical addresses (e.g. the address of the street). Bullet s . The most downloaded Ruby gems out there. It was initially created with an intention to boost software performance. It does so by decreasing the total amount of client-server requests. Basically Bullet tracks the N+1 cases of requests and notifies the developer when other tools can be used instead (e.g. cache counter). Pry s . We rmend to simplify the bug fixing procedures for your RoR-based application with the Pry gem which is a more advanced alternative to the standard IRB wrapper. ActiveModelSerializers s (which starts lagging while processingpound documents) and uses caching. Fast JSON API s . Fast JSON API wille in handy when you need fast serialization of software code. It works much faster than Wicked PDF s . This gem is working alongside with wkhtmltopdf s and helps realizing an interaction with the DSL generator. Devise Masquerade s . This Ruby gem helps developing multi user apps. In particular youll be able to test your app from the perspective of users with different levels of access. Devise s .

Money Rails s . If you are planning to integrate your app with Ruby Money this gem wille in quite handy. Pundit s . A tool that allows defining different levels of access to the app functionality according to the rights of an authorized user.
Can Microsoft Office apps run on Linux?
The short answer to your question is yes but with what seems to be a fair amount of issues. You have a couple of options as is tradition for Linux users Use Microsoft version of Google docs e.g their online Microsoft office utilities s . In my opinion this is by far the easiest option and honestly quite nice. Can be a bit slow in my experience obviously requires an internet connection and forces you to make an account to use in the first place. The traditional option- LibreOffice. It not as bad as people say it is but it definitely no Microsoft Office. Still it more or less got all the utilities you need. And of course some things may not look the same in LibreOffice as they do when you open up documents that had been created in Office. ordered-list There you have it. Let me know if I haven covered all my bases.
Why do people keep saying Linux is better than Windows when there's no Office and Adobe products, which are some of the most useful products?
For me Linux is better becausen The only Adobe product I use is their free PDF Reader (and it's available on Linux too) and that too because it was the first PDF Reader some one introduced me to and I was too lazy to ever try another one. So no Adobe products are not the most useful . Actually they are not at all useful. The time I spend on Office is generally the time I consider a burden Yes I understand the importance of reports but doesn't make the job likeable. And for my use cases pretty printing and Excel macros are a waste of time. Pure waste of time. So no Office is not the most useful software . And the Office equivalents on Linux do my job well enough - all I need is some basic formatting. Nothing fancy thank you. I would rather not waste my time making documents look nice. find grep cut awk sed uniq are the most important tools. And none of them are natively available on Windows. I mean I actually spend hours searching for ways to do these very basic things everytime I am forced to work on Windows. GUI? Why would I care? Most of my work is done on terminals. Most of my play is playing videos (VLC has the same GUI) and browsing (Chrome or Firefox has the same GUI). Even if I consent to be modernised enough to use a GUI IDE Eclipse (and others) have exactly same GUI on all platforms. What's different? The way my desktop looks? Well having multiple workspaces is really cool. Beats having four monitors and swivelling constantly in your chair any day! And really I am the kind of screwed up character who thinks OS X actually looks ugly in some parts. And no it is not that paid software is better than free software because someone somewhere wants to make money and hence put in more effort than the random guy did for free. Look at Google's free products. Free is not equal to bad quality . Free software is generally better in my experience. nBut whichever idiot said Linux is always italic better? Linux is better for anything other than personalputers (servers systems mobile devices) and for any personalputer meant mostly as a dev environment. In any other case it may be italic .
