A way to handle some unreadable PDF files
Authored by: enigmamf on May 19, '11 08:32:15AM

I had some PDFs generated from an Ubuntu box - I couldn't read them anywhere (Preview, Reader on Mac or PC, Adobe Reader). My only solution was to install VirtualBox, create an Ubuntu virtual machine, open them in its native reader, print to a postscript file, copy that back to the Mac, and convert that to a PDF.
