    command line tool to modify pdf file properties

    Hi,

    Is there any pdf command line tool that one can use to modify following properties of a pdf file:

    Title
    Author
    Subject
    Keywords.

    The file is without password.

    Also is it possible to secure file through command line?

    Thanks in advance
    Sujit R Jadhav

    Nice of you to come back and share your find

    Re. securing the pdf file, check out qpdf from the software center.

    DESCRIPTION
    The qpdf program is used to convert one PDF file to another equiv‐
    alent PDF file. It is capable of performing a variety of trans‐
    formations such as linearization (also known as web optimization
    or fast web viewing), encryption, and decryption of PDF files. It
    also has many options for inspecting or checking PDF files, some
    of which are useful primarily to PDF developers.

    For a summary of qpdf's options, please run qpdf --help. A com‐
