In case someone with a similar situation finds this page -- here's how to run  
a script:

1.  Open the terminal, and type:

cd [directory where your script is]

Example:

cd /home/username/Desktop/research/

Put the PDF files in the same directory

2.  Then type the following, to give yourself permission to run the script  
(is that what it does?)

chmod +x [script name]

3. Run the script

./[script name]

4. For Magic Bananna's script -- the terminal will tell you to use the script  
this way:

./[script name] [pdf-name].pdf [pdf-name].pdf

OR you can do all the PDFs in that folder in one go with an asterix, like  
this:

./[script name] *.pdf
