Installation on Raspberry Pi

The installation is easy as it comes as single file installer. You just have to download the Unix Installer for PDF Studio which is an sh script file that you simply have to run using the following command:

sh ./PDFStudio_unix.sh

Note that the Raspbian OS already comes packaged with Java, so normally, there is no need to install Java; all you have to do is download and run the Unix installer as explained above.

PDF Studio also works on Windows, Mac and Linux. One license key can be used to register the software on 2 machines of any operating system.
