What works

Installation, running, and anything that does not require a printer.

What does not

Neither MS Word plugin (tested with MS Word 2000) nor virtual PDF printer. I guess wine relies entirely on CUPS, and of course CUPS won't detect anything that's running under wine...


What was not tested

A world of things... I could successfully delete a page from a PDF document, though. ;-)

Additional Comments

I'm giving it silver for others did before. But I pretty much doubt that they could make the PDF printer work. It is a real issue, as CUPS-PDF and OOffice will create much bigger files than Acrobat. That's probably the main reason to keep using it, except for it's nicer to use a GUI than pdftk.
