Subject description: very light pdf viewer controlled by command lines and keyboard keys
 

There is a ppa for mupdf :
add-apt-repository ppa:mupdf/stable

Latest version 1.3-2 is provided with this ppa

But you can also download and install mupdf from standard repositories : mupdf mupdf-tools.

To read a pdf file :
From folder where you have downloaded pdf file, in terminal :

mupfd example.pdf

Enter

You navigate from page to page with keyboard.

To set anti-aliasing quality : -b is the option to add

mupdf -b=1 example.pdf
0 to 8 (maximum)

mupdf will render pdf files quickly, even on older systems.

Do not look for a GUI. There is only pdf pages showing, but it is fast and easy on your older systems.
