Hello,
Is there a PDF reader that allows underlining, highlighting, inserting notes, bookmarks, etc that runs fine in Puppy?

I’m used to Okular but I don´t find it in Puppy Package Manager ... maybe I need to add a new repository?

Thanks!

(I tried Foxit but: i was unable to make it the default reader; the application crashes when i open a PDF through "Open>File"; looking to the menus, this version of Foxit seems to be just a basic reader without any of the functions above)

If you have lupu you have access to the ubuntu repositories. There must be something in them that does what you want, eh?

I have always used Foxit on the dreaded windows machine, and apparently there is a Linux version too now. Still have not got around to trying it though.

The Linux Foxitreader does a lot less. It is pretty similar to ePDFview. The Windows version has traditionally run well on Linux using wine... but you might be better off using Okular. What version of Puppy are you using?

Thanks for your replies! From the suggestions presented only Okular provides what i need... I was able to install, but not to run without problems. I´ll probably install Wine and PDF-XChange Viewer.

You might also want to check out Xournal (available on this forum, although I'm not sure if it is the latest) or the patch which adds annotation capability to xpdf http://www.foolabs.com/xpdf/portsntools.html

This article, here, mentions editing pdfs using Inkscape & OpenOffice.

While I haven't tried Inkscape, I've had some success with OOffice, using the PDF import extension.

( I say some success because not all pdfs I've tried have saved properly)

While I applaud that pdfescape does, I don't want to be sending every PDF I read to pdfescape.com Very Happy

Hi there,

I tried the evince*.pet posted in Precise 5.7.1 and is not working,

Code:
# evince Bulletin_6040A.pdf

(evince:25868): EvinceDocument-WARNING **: /usr/lib/evince/2/backends/libpdfdocument.so: undefined symbol: poppler_page_get_thumbnail_pixbuf

(evince:25868): EvinceDocument-WARNING **: Cannot load backend 'pdfdocument' since file '/usr/lib/evince/2/backends/libpdfdocument.so' cannot be read.

(evince:25868): EvinceDocument-WARNING **: /usr/lib/evince/2/backends/libpdfdocument.so: undefined symbol: poppler_page_get_thumbnail_pixbuf

(evince:25868): EvinceDocument-WARNING **: Cannot load backend 'pdfdocument' since file '/usr/lib/evince/2/backends/libpdfdocument.so' cannot be read.

The library is there but it can't read it... Sad any clues?

All the best guys!

I use Master PDF Editor:

http://code-industry.net/free-pdf-editor.php

It needs qt4 libraries:

http://smokey01.com/pemasu/pet_packages-exprimo/qt-4.8.0-basic-with-qtwebkit-dpup.pet

(tested in wary)

or:

http://www.4shared.com/file/Fs1zcssq/qt-471.html

(tested in wary, puppy 4 series and recent puppies)

or:

http://smokey01.com/pemasu/pet_packages-upup/qt-4.8.2.sfs

(only in recent puppies).
