Use a free third-party Java tool to truly compress PDFs
Authored by: phil4u2 on Jan 16, '10 05:31:55PM

I tried "Rob's version" with a ~/bin/pdftools/ folder, but it doesn't work for me.

I use Mac OSX 10.6.2

When using Multivalent directly in Terminal I get the following error:

Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: /Users/xxx/bin/pdfcompress/tool/pdf/compress

Later on , I tried the modified hint from Sveto, that is, without decompressing (or expanding) the file Multivalent.jar, but instead only placing it in ~/bin/pdftools/, and it is now working.
