pdf

Pull a page range from a pdf

pdftk {filename.pdf} cat {page ranges} output {output.pdf}

Get metadata of a pdf

pdfinfo {filename.pdf}

Concatenate a bunch of pdfs

Note: I think this overwrites the last input file if you forget to specify an output!!

pdfunite {file.pdf...} {output.pdf}

SELinux

ausearch -m avc to find denials. If there are none, that's probably because some distro maintainer decided that the denial should be silent:

semodule -DB turns on dontaudit events, semodule -B turns them back off.

When trying to get things to work correctly with audit2allow, skip the 15 minutes of doing things over and over triggering different denials and running audit2allow -M mymodule < fails; semodule -i mymodule.pp by just doing a quick setenforce 0 before doing it once. All of the actions (AVCs?) in creating a file will show up in the log in one shot. Obviously turn on enforcing mode afterwards.

When in doubt, consult the colouring book.
