14/02/16: Since the following is just a very tiny bit of information meant for more experienced users I am currently writing a new more thorough version of this article. You will find the link to it here soon.
Ubuntu needs a good native PDF annotation solution! But meanwhile we still have to work with something. Thanks to gnurou.org for pointing out a good interim solution: PDF-X-Change.
Warning: Having PDF-X-Change installed regularly, it will crash every time you hit save (but saves changes nonetheless).
As a reader of gnurou pointed out in a comment: the portable version of PDF-X-Change does not crash.
To add PDF-X-Change to the "open with" dialog:
Add a executable bash script e.g. to you
#!/bin/bash PDFXVIEWER=~/".wine/drive_c/[PATH TO EXE]/PDFXCview.exe" if (($# != 1)); then echo "usage: $0 filename" exit 1 fi cd "$(dirname "$1")" wine "$PDFXVIEWER" "$(basename "$1")"
Code taken from the nice guys at ubuntuusers.de.
Add a *.desktop file in
[Desktop Entry] Name=PDFXChange Exec=/usr/local/bin/pdfxchange %U Terminal=false Type=Application # Original Image # Icon=C055_PDFXCview.0 Icon=/usr/share/icons/Humanity/mimes/48/gnome-mime-application-pdf.svg MimeType=application/postscript;application/pdf
