I tried the imagemagick trick from above but that left the pdf in a very bad shape, so don't....

hhuummm... >:

Try this:

$ convert -density 288 downloads/ALM-2010-Apr-1.pdf -flop alm-good.pdf

Hint taken from http://www.mail-archive.com/magick-user … 06021.html

It takes a while and generates a 60 MB pdf but it's readable smile
There's definitely a better way to do this..

Re: Arch Linux Magazine, April 2010

For those having trouble reading the magazine, this is what I did since the PDF
reader I use doesn't have a horizontal flip option.  I converted the individual
pages to ppm files with:
  for i in $(seq 1 8); do pdftoppm -f $i -l $i ALM-2010-Apr-1.pdf foo; done
Then I read the files using xv (any image viewer will do) after flipping them with 'h'.

Anyway, the last bit about Multixrulz lugging computers around Australia
for 17 months has the sense of an April Fool about it.

Anyone tried it with Inkscape? It can open PDF pages.
Then type:
CTRL+A  (select all)
H           (flip horizontally)

Actually the part about Multixrulz was sent in for last month's magazine, but given what I did last month I didn't feel like including a deskshots feature... as such, I suspect it's legit... he didn't know it was gonna be in the April issue!

Hahaha, I did expect that everyone would think my deskshot was the April Fools joke, but it's not. roll  Problem was I couldn't find a new laptop I was willing to buy at the time, so along came the desktop!  Just as well, since I needed a new 500G hard drive to cope with all the video we've shot.

Re: Arch Linux Magazine, April 2010

So how did you flip the PDF anyway and retain the ability to select the text?

The imagemagick way just converts it to a series of images and flips them.

Re: Arch Linux Magazine, April 2010

I'd love to see some more images of the custom PC box on the last page of the magazine. I've been considering doing essentially the same thing for some time, to use for live music performances.
