making a pdf file smaller the debian way....
Dear Debian folks,
I have pdf file that is too big to be emailed around easily. I tried
making a zip file out of it but that only made it 1% smaller. I don't
have the scanner with me or I could have scanned it at lower
But e.g. adobe acrobat I think has an option in it somewhere to take a
pdf and reduce it in some way and then output a smaller file. I
possibly could install acrobat in some non free way that would do that
but I think you might be able to do it in ghostscript from some
limited googling I did. But maybe there would a better way.......
