somehow this is not working for me:

  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/pkg_resources/", line 786, in resolve
    raise DistributionNotFound(req, requirers)
pkg_resources.DistributionNotFound: The 'pdftools.pdfposter==0.7.post1' distribution was not found and is required by the application

also the dependency seems to be back to python-pypdf2 instead of of python2-pypdf2

That was fast - thanks :-)

RealOrRandom is right - please update the dependency to python2-pypdf2 (in the AUR).

This seems to need python2-pypdf2 now.

It seams Perseids, gok and CtHx's comments are still in force. If you don't mind the overlap option remove overlap_option.patch and xy_offset.patch. However, If you need the overlap option, you can use the source code at

(It was the latest version on develop branch as of this writing, 0.6.1dev) and
apply Jens-Birger Schlie's patch available at

to make the -O (overlap) option work. This version depends on python2-pypdf2, available in AUR.

Here you have a suggested PKGBUILD based on the original one. It works for me, but YMMV.

Any suggestion or improvement? You're welcome.

cookies, thanks for your work.

Same as gok and CtHx. Tested with `pdfposter 1xA3.pdf 2xA4.pdf -m a4 -p 2x1a4`

Same as CtHx, I could not use pdfposter with overlap_option.patch and xy_offset.patch.
It worked after removing them. I tested only with the following command though:
"pdfposter -m A3 -p A0 poster.pdf out.pdf"

Seems overlap_option.patch causes errors. I've removed overlap_option.patch and xy_offset.patch, after that I could use this programm.

Update to v0.6.0dev-4, get patches from upstream.

I agree with Hoek, there is a bug... I want pdfposter to create 8 A4 files for an image resized to A1, and the command would be:

pdfposter -mA4 -pA1 file.pdf out.pdf

Only one of -p/--poster-size and -s/--scale may be given at a time.
