Authors/Port authors:

Qpdfview is a tabbed PDF viewer. Program developed using the Qt4 framework.

This software is distributed in two modes:
  • as compressed package that you have to download and manually install; if prerequisites are required, you will have to manually install them too;
  • as RPM package; you can install it using your favorite rpm package manager, that will take care to download and install both the software and its prerequisites.
Choose the installation mode that you prefer. Please note that not all the versions are available in both the installation modes.

This program is a great viewer for pdf-files. I appreciate that it uses multiple cores on smp systems, which is especially helpful when viewing files containing many large bitmaps. However, it is inconvenient that preloading is limited to 10 pages only. I therefore suggest implementing the option of setting this value much higher. It should be noted that it might be helpful to let preloading work in the background and stop if necessary to complete other tasks.
