Arrrgh! That means you have to pass your PDF doc to a third party site.
Fine if you don't care about that, but why not try pdftk? 

Quote "If PDF is electronic paper, then pdftk is an electronic
stapler-remover, hole-punch, binder, secret-decoder-ring, and
X-Ray-glasses. Pdftk is a simple tool for doing everyday things with
PDF documents." Unquote 

It should be in your repository.
