Just how much do you need to un-PDF it? There's a tool called pdftotext
that will convert the content to clear-text. There's also pdf2ps that
will convert it to PostScript, for what it's worth.
Pdftotext is available from the xpdf-utils package, pdf2ps is available
from the ghostscript package. Both are installed by default on Ubuntu.
