pdfunite 1.pdf 2.pdf ... 5.pdf output.pdf && booklet output.pdf && lp -o sides=two-sided-long-edge output.pdf

would get it done in one line but that's cheating

@openess I took the long way around for that middle step. Would love to have a booklet command, is it in repo or did you write a script?

@habmala booklet is in the . Honestly not sure where pdfunite comes from but I think it's part of a larger package.. PDFtools maybe, if thats in repo??

Props to whoever wrote these, I can't remember now.

I've been contemplating chaining booklet and lp in a script though.. You never read the booklet on screen, the pages are all mixed. might as well save it in /tmp and print it straight away..

@openess @habmala “pdfunite” is part of the “poppler” package:

$ pacman -Qo pdfunite
