You would need a PDF editor that allows you to split PDF documents. And for you, that editor would need to work on Linux.

Your OS does reduce the number of available programs.

Thus far, I have been able to find only one. Unfortunately, it's not free.

PDF Studio by Qoppa Software. http://www.qoppa.com/pdfstudio/

There may be others available, but so far, I haven't found any others that work in Linux and allow you to split and merge PDF documents.

Look in the package manager for your distro

I use PCLinuxOS and went to synaptic and searched for pdf and found :

jpdftweak - jPDF Tweak is a Java Swing application that can combine,
split, rotate, reorder, watermark, encrypt, sign, and
otherwise tweak PDF files.

pdfedit - Complete editing of pdf documents is easy with PDFedit.
You can change either raw pdf objects (for advanced users)
or use predefined gui functions.

pdfmod - PDF Mod is a simple application for modifying PDF documents.
You can reorder, rotate, and remove pages, export images from a document,
edit the title, subject, author, and keywords, and combine documents via
drag and drop.

- Pdftk is a simple tool for doing everyday things with PDF documents.
Keep one in the top drawer of your desktop and use it to:
- Merge PDF Documents

- Apply a Background Watermark

- Update PDF Metadata
- Attach Files to PDF Pages or the PDF Document
- Unpack PDF Attachments
