PDF Reader with Annoations - Okular

For those who store much information digitally and less on paper, Okular is a nice software to create annotations in PDF documents. Okular runs on multiple platforms, but I had been using it on Ubuntu for some time and quite happy with it.

'sudo apt-get install okular' will install Okular on Ubuntu. The annotations are stored in the $HOME/.kde/share/apps/okular/docdata folder as a separate file for each pdf document. By creating a symlink for this folder in DropBox, the annotations are automatically backed up.

This is no way related to  Hadoop, but thought of blogging it. BTW, there a quite a number of free and very useful software like GIMP for Linux.
