    About Evince


    Hi folks,

    Has any folk tested "Evince" which supports pdf, postscript, djvu, tiff and dvi.
    http://www.gnome.org/projects/evince/

    Can it run on Linux without GNOME desktop? I'm searching a lightweight pdf reader with copying function. Any advice? TIA

    B.R.

    I've recently been switched by my computer to using Evince (for some reason xpdf is no longer good enough to be default) although I'm not sure how. :P

    However, I've found it fairly good (though I have used it very little) although I did experience one crash, I have been unable to get it to happen again, so it must just have been a passing illness...
