Compress PDF Files Effectively in Ubuntu

Found a great script that does an amazing job with compressing PDF files whilst maintaining a good quality:

Get the script from here: http://www.alfredklomp.com/programming/shrinkpdf/

Just copy the script to a text file and make it executable, then run:

./shrinkpdf infile.pdf outfile.pdf

It compressed 3 PDF files from 80 MB to 13 MB!

Enjoy!
