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.......

Suggestions welcome.
