From MEPIS Documentation Wiki
This package is available in the Mepis 8 repos.
Ever had a PDF form that you wanted an easy way to fill out while looking professional? The are tutorials on the web for using The Gimp to do this, but it can be a bit awkward and can degrade the quality. PDFedit is a program that can solve your problem and more. A description from their site:
Free editor for PDF documents. Complete editing of PDF documents is possible with PDFedit. You can change raw pdf objects (for advanced users) or use many gui functions. Functionality can be easily extended using a scripting language (ECMAScript).
If we are not using MEPIS 8 we can compile it.
