I have quite a few PDFs that are a mess. Organizing them takes time when the metadata is not right, because most indexers to look there for hints. I have searched through Synaptic and even installed most apps that pretend to work with PDFs. So far most do the exact same thing: split into pages and insert pages at certain position. And I can't find one that can put up a page with Title, Author, Tags and so forth.

I have the same interest, an excelent organizer for documents like Shotwell does for pictures and Banshee does for music, for example.

As for now, I've found Referencer (https://launchpad.net/referencer), which is on the Trisquel official repo. I think it can't do everything I wanted, as it is intended to organize references and not the documents itself, but it can sort them by tags.

You may be interested in Paperwork: https://github.com/jflesch/paperwork#readme

If you are rather talking about a bibliography, many tools exist and may be useful to actually organize any PDF (e.g., GNOME Referencer and JabRef both are in Trisquel's repository): http://www.linuxlinks.com/article/20100706151504485/Bibliography.html

As for "Title, Author, Tags and so forth", 'pdfjam' can do that with '--pdftitle STRING', '--pdfauthor STRING', '--pdfsubject STRING', and '--pdfkeywords STRING'.

Nope. It is not about bibliography. I have calibre for that.

It is about tagging the old PDFs I have not tagged.

And doing it with the command line is a quick fix for a single file.

As for Paperwork it says nothing about editing metadata. OCR, labeling, search, that's about it.

'pdfjam' accepts several PDF files in arguments.

Right. I remember using it a few years back. My only complaint against it lies with the need to install the Java beast as well.
