Hallo -

coming back to the pdftk issue:

I tried the installer and a few pdftk-command (add Metadata, protect  
the pdf against copying, ...) and the abovementioned installer seems  
to work on 10.5. It installs pdftk version 1.2 (not the most recent)

The readme says that it installs the following files:


I will try to install Fink and then (via Fink) the most recent pdftk  
and will report back in a new thread how this works....

Thanks for your help
