[scribus] Too large PDF Export file

I think that I will give up my intention to use the perl script to reduce 
the size of my template pdf and find another way to solve my problem. It 
seems to me that the perl script is made for an UNIX environment and maybe 
I need to install something like cygwin or SFU on my Windows based PC(?). 
UNIX/Linux and perl script are not areas I'm familiar with, so if not 
somebody has a simple solution to reduce my pdf file size on my Windows 
platform, I will find another solution.

But anyhow, thank you for the answers.

/Regards Christer

pdftk is a program and it seems to be needed by the script.


you may have to write the correct path for it in the script, if it 
doesn't get automically found after having installed it.

good luck
