I believe somehow more clear instructions should be mentioned?
At least it took me quite some time to figure out that installing one of the pdf plugin is required.
Well pacman output always shows optional dependancies with it's one line description, you can also check it with
pacman -Si <pkg name>
or for installed pkgs
pacman -Qi <pkg name>
++ the output of same commands also gives link to the source site of that package, where you can check documentation.
++ zathura also supports comic books with "zathura-cb" but it is not shown as optional dep, which needs to be added.
Arch is home!

[EDIT] works again after a recent update, :-)
automatic document reloading (when the file is modified) is not working for me
I dont get any change events when i use zathura -l debug

I'd like to append the current document path (or a recent opened document path) from zathura to a file, so that I can create a list of favourites which can then be opened with tabbed + zathura in a successive session.
Do you know how can I do, or where to focus in the source code in order to create such a patch?
Also it would be great to manage this "document bookmarks" within zathura.
I read a lot of technology books. I'm a software developer.
I have a directory in my /home called books.
To create fast access to the books I'm currently reading I do the following:
1. cd /home/my-user/books
2. ln -s path/to/my/book.pdf mybook
Then, when I want to read the book, I click on the book icon in Dolphin and I'm there. The next time I click on the same icon it will open in the last page I ware reading.
Hope this helps.
