I need to transform PDF to text (ascii) ...
How can I do that ?


if you open it with Acrobat reader 7 (available as RPM here:http://ardownload.adobe.com/pub/adobe/reader/unix/7x/7.0/enu/AdobeReader_enu-7.0.0-2.i386.rpm)
you can select the text you want, or select all if you like.

You can then paste it into OpenOffice. If you get the 'selected clipboard format not available' message, click on the Klipper icon in the right-hand corner of the taskbar, and select the clipboard content you want. Then paste.

This is by far the easiest solution
