Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, Krop is an easy to use tool for cropping PDF files. Among others, krop automatically splits pages into subpages to fit the eBook readers screens, being useful for eReaders with bad scrolling support.
The latest version available is Krop 0.4.5, which has been recently released. For information about the fixes and enhancements brought by the latest version, see the changelog.
In this article I will show you how to install Krop 0.4.5 on Ubuntu, Linux Mint, Elementary OS, Debian, Kwheezy and Crunchbang.
Because it is not available via any repository, we have to download the deb package and install it with dpkg. Since it is multi-arch, it works on both 32 bit (i386) and 64 bit (amd64) systems:
$ wget arminstraub.com/downloads/krop/krop_0.4.5-1_all.deb
$ sudo dpkg -i krop_0.4.5-1_all.deb
