Stripping images from a PDF
I have a PDF that contains both text and images, and I would like to be able to print only the text. Many of the images are full-page, and make the printed page harder to read (not to mention wasting toner).
I've tried using pdf2html, pdftohtml, pstotext, but run into problems because the text is in two columns or a in a table, so the output isn't acceptable. I have also tried running GIMP on the file in both PDF and PostScript formats, but it doesn't seem to put text and images in different layers. Acrobat Reader 5.0.9 doesn't have the ability either. Copying and pasting from the PDF to OpenOffice Writer or MS Word (via Crossover Office) doesn't work well either -- special characters don't copy properly -- and is manually intensive.
I don't necessarily need the text exported -- I'd just like an image-free print-out.
I'm running x86 Gentoo, with CUPS as my printing system.
