@Juanito

Yes, the programs contained in both evince.tcz and evince2.tcz from repository both had the same problems on my box. Might try later to install Xorg and see if problems keep occurring.

@Tinypoodle

Your script worked fine. Nice to be able to keep the system as intended without ugly "binaries everywhere". Thnx

About Evince.tcz:
installed Xorg-7.7.tcz and graphics3.8.13. Afer reboot, installed evince.tcz. Prog does not work OK (see screenshot attached). But it is possible to open a pdf file and to zoom to 400%.

Removed evince again. Hope this helps to track the origin of problems.

Are you referring to the missing icons?

If so, gnome-icon-theme-symbolic will fix things.

Edit: that doesn't fix it - strange...

Glad to hear so, but script in question is actually the work of Jason W   ;)

Now evince2 says it does not support pdf files.

Unable to open document
File type PDF document (application/pdf) is not supported

--- update ---

(evince:6352): EvinceDocument-WARNING **: Cannot load backend 'pfdocument' since file '/usr/local/lib/evince/3/backends/libpdfdocument.so' cannot be read.

I removed and re-installed evince 2 with no change.

Does it now work with Xvesa too, or?

Blind guessing based on conclusions drawn from other apps, have you made sure that Xvesa is running with at least 24bpp?

hi friends,

under microcore 5.2rc3 epdfview with xorg doesn't start, too.
the process takes 100% of the cpu and the program doesn't show up.
... the same odd behavior with the last versions of gtk3 and poppler-packages as with the updated ones.

thank you for your commitment.

Yes, I am running Xvesa  1024x768x24 on one machine and 1280x800x24 on another.
Evince2 fails on both.

I was wrong, thought this issue was resolved with an update however still exists with evince v3.10.3 when used with Xvesa.  When used with Xorg evince v3.10.3 did not quit when zoomed and performed as expected.
