Lumina-pdf viewer


#1

I’m having a usability problem with the lumina pdf-viewer. All pdf files which I’ve opened with the lumina-pdf utility are “blurry”. Meaning, for some docs the text is sort of smeared and for others the text has a lot of ghosting. In either case, it makes the doc very difficult to read.

Yesterday, I did the update to the most recent stable and since then I have the problem. On the previous version of stable, I never encountered this problem.

Was something changed in the pdf-viewer? Any feedback would be appreciated.

All the above aside, TrueOS is a great system. Please keep up the good work. It’s my main workstation both at home and work. Thanks.

Thanks for the info Rod, looks like they’re already aware of the problem.

Good to see that the problem will be fixed. It’s a good simple utility for presentations and pdf-viewing.


#4

Until this is fixed I am using the TrueOS PDF viewer. This is automatically installed with the basic apps.

Did you try to install the okular via repository??? It worked for me!

No, I didn’t install okular. Like q_pa wrote, the TrueOS PDF viewer works well enough and it’s installed by default. Since okular is a component of KDE, it probably requires a lot of dependencies/packages to be installed along with it. I’d like to keep things simple if possible.


#7

was going to point that out. It brings a whole lotta dependencies with it

xpdf is a great alternative
