How can I fix/repair a corrupted PDF file?

Does anyone have any recommendation or procedures for repairing a corrupt PDF? When I open the file I get "There was an error opening this document. the file is damaged and cannot be repaired." There seems to be a myriad of tools out there but none that I could describe as reputable. Are there any opensource linux based solutions for this possibly?

Hello,

I've never used this freeware PDF Recovery Tool, but looks like it may work.

There are a multitude of options in this thread from Superuser that is eerily similar to your opening post, even the title is the same.
