Today Quick Tip: Use epdfview to read PDF documents PDF
Tuesday, 06 April 2010
If you do not want to install Linux binary compatibility package/port to use Acrobat Reader of you have issues with it (for example Acrobat Reader crashes or will not scroll up/down when you keep arrow key pressed) and if you don't like the simplicity of xpdf then there is another application useful for viewing/reading of PDF documents: epdfview.

  whereis epdfview
  cd /usr/ports/graphics/epdfview
  make install clean
  rehash

You can also add this app in mc extension menu so when you press Enter on an document in Midnight Commander it will open that document with epdfview.
