Does anybody know of an app which will allow me to fill form fields on a PDF file. I currently use okular on my debian 7 system to fills these fields and also to read epubs, but if I install it on my core system it will require much KDE code. I have found calibre for epubs.

Dave.

filling, then printing... apparently entails different functionality compared to
"filling, and saving the document with formfileds containing prefilled values".
You didn't specify an exact requirement; some of the following may fall short of handling the latter, but here's a list of leads for you to check out:
I hope you'll post back to report which (if any) of these suit you


https://packages.debian.org/jessie/pdftk
idunno whether that package contains the commandline version for programmatically filling fields...

or the GUI version...

free for home use
32bit and 64bit .deb packages available
QT (not java) Yay!

? free if you can actually find it (the reputed free, 2015 version, for linux)

? ausfüllen ~= "fill" ?

FWIW, because PDFs can serve both a vulnerability vector (malicous embeds) and a privacy-leaking vector (retrieving remote images)
i personally use only "dumb" readers (xpdf under linux, SumatraPDF under windows) and drop net connection beforehand.

I use fbreader in AntiX for epub books. Comix for my comic books. Both come in lighter than caiibre for me. Which handles both from what I can tell.
But I run the full iso. My core installs and base installs were back in when AntiX was in 8.0 through 11. I got lazy I guess.
