Re: zathura - a document viewer

Does Zathura have an option to start on the last page read of a pdf? I have googled it and looked on pwmt.org's Zathura options page and haven't found an answer.

zathura saves your last position that you've viewed in the document in a database (or file) and will open it right where you left it.

Kind regards

This feature isn't working out of the box here, was it supposed to?

Can you show me your ~/.config/zathurarc file? And you should have a file called 'history' in ~/.local/share/zathura.

I haven't made a config file for zathura yet, but what I find strange is that I don't have /etc/zathurarc either!
Looking for the history file you mentioned I found out there wasn't even a zathura folder inside ~/.local/share, so I made it and tried opening a pdf, scrolling down a few pages and re-opening it, but it didn't work -- still no history file there.

Re: zathura - a document viewer

Somehow the issue fixed itself when I uninstalled both zathura and zathura-pdf-mupdf, and then reinstalled zathura with the poppler backend.
This raised another question: why is zathura with poppler backend faster than with mupdf when mupdf alone is way faster than zathura?

Okay, I'm glad that it worked out for you so easily. - I think we need to investigate into that a bit, but one issue might be that we need to copy the rendered buffer in the mupdf plugin.

Thanks! It would be really great if zathura's mupdf plugin got closer to mupdf's speed, it would simply blow poppler away.

I only hope someone would make plugins for ebook formats (epub, mobi, fb2...).

Re: zathura - a document viewer

Hi,

I tried zathura recently, and it is great, very fast and light-weighted.

The only problem I am having now is that:  it seems I cannot copy contents by "draw and select" though the statusbar shows the content have been copied to my clipboard.

I tried both zathura from official repository and zathura-git from AUR, the problem persists.

Can anyone please help?

Thanks!

Per default zathura copies the selected text into the primary clipboard (paste it with the middle mouse button). You can use the selection-clipboard setting and set it to clipboard to paste it into the clipboard selection (paste it with C-v). Check zathurarc(5) for more info.

I agree, it looks amazing!! Thank you 3xOSC .

I wanted to ask (anyone in general) if there is a way to have an icon (I assume a custom one pointed to on your system) for Zathura? This is the only thing I want/need before I can acclaim how perfect Zathura is. I would love to see annotation features but that might be an unrealistic request...

Edit its .desktop file.

see:

/usr/share/applications/zathura.desktop

/usr/share/applications/zathura.desktop

Considering that this is not in the backup array, I think you should copy this file into your $HOME/.local/share/applications and edit it there.  Its existence in your home directory should override the one in /usr/share/applications as long as it has the same name.

At least, this is how I think it works... I don't actually use .desktop files or icons for anything these days.

Yes, it works exactly as you described. I didn't mention it in my post because I feel it is obvious to always copy stuff from /usr to $HOME and edit it there.

In your zathurarc,

set window-icon "/usr/share/icons/elementary/mimes/32/x-office-document.svg"

Just to to let everyone know, this works. However I'm curious as to why I can't find "window-icon" in the man pages?

To be honest with you: It's not. Actually I've implemented some basic stuff more than a year ago but those patches will probably not apply on our current code base. I've started implementing them in libzathura and once this is ready they will be supported by zathura - but I am afraid the only thing I can't give you is a date.

Kind regards

Re: zathura - a document viewer

Hi,

zathura is really a good application. There is only one problem: I can't use an other application at the moment to
view my pdf smile. It would be really great to make annotations in pdf with zathura. Any hope to see this feature in the next few months ?
Or is it better that I search for another solution ?

The next few months are feasible, but for now you should be look out for an alternative application. But we are working on it smile
