Tried, but couldm't reproduce your error. Any error message differente
than 'error'? I suggest contacting the maintainer, in this package's
comments.

p.s.: fyi, issues related to AUR packages should be sent to
aur-general, instead of arch-general.

Hi Randy,
I haven't tried stapler but I use pdfjoin whenever I want to merge two or
more pdf files with a lot of success.

Hello,

Is anyone here using "stapler-git" from the AUR? I'm trying to use it to
combine two pdf files into one and it's not working for me.

When using the command "stapler cat 1.pdf 2.pdf output.pdf" it just returns
the message "error".

Could someone try this to see if it works ok?

Thanks

Actually I think I just figured it out. If I try the same command on two
other PDFs then it works just fine. I think there's an issue with one of
the PDFs that it's not 100% Adobe pdf compliant. When I try to convert
the same bad file using ghostscript it works but it tells me the following:



**** Warning: File has an invalid xref entry: 2. Rebuilding xref table.
**** Warning: stream operator isn't terminated by valid EOL.

Thanks for taking the time to help!
