Command line combine pdfs

The other day I needed to combine some pdf files into a single multi-page file.  I hadn’t done this in linux before, so I did some searching on the ol’ internet.  Sure enough, found an easy solution. shared this tool: PDFTK.  This is the perfect tool and works with a little command line magic.

First, install PDFTK with this:  sudo apt-get install gs pdftk

Then run it to combine PDF’s with this: gs -dNOPAUSE -sDEVICE=pdfwrite -sOUTPUTFILE=combined.pdf -dBATCH 1.pdf 2.pdf 3.pdf

That command is for where you are combining 1.pdf, 2.pdf, and 3.pdf into one pdf called combined.pdf.

That’s it!
