Developing and Building

If you want to hack on and build EasySSH yourself, you'll need the following dependencies:

  • libgtk-3-dev
  • libgranite-dev
  • meson
  • valac
  • ghostscript

Run meson build to configure the build environment and run ninja test to build and run automated tests

meson build --prefix=/usr
cd build
ninja test

To install, use ninja install, then execute with com.github.muriloventuroso.pdftricks

sudo ninja install


In recent versions of ImageMagick has been added a security policy that blocks manipulations in PDF files. This affects PDFTricks operations. To correct this change the settings of your ImageMagick installation.

Find and edit the configuration file.


To check the ImageMagick version:

convert --version

Find the line that contains the rule for PDF files:

<policy domain="coder" rights="none" pattern="PDF" />

And change to:

<!-- <policy domain="coder" rights="none" pattern="PDF" /> -->

And ready!

Install with Flatpak


flatpak install flathub com.github.muriloventuroso.pdftricks
