Installing pdfedit fails

Postby ben_ben » Sun Mar 24, 2013 6:08 pm

Hello there,

if I enter "sudo apt-get install pdfedit" I get the following output:

Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
Package pdfedit is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source

E: Package 'pdfedit' has no installation candidate
Can anybody give me a hint on how to resolve this issue?

Thank you in advance.

Hello, ben_ben.

I cannot really reproduce the problem. Launched Synaptic and looked for the package "pdfedit". It is available in the official repositories. What I see is "pdfedit v0.4.5-2". This is on Mint 13, 32-bit.
Perhaps you should execute

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install pdfedit
It is a good habit to refresh the software list before performing any kind of installation. Maybe it helps.

Kind regards,
