Re: zathura - a document viewer

Hi,

Here is simple patch against 89e8ebdc / 0.0.8.3 to fix the key-grabbing issue when switching to fullscreen. I do believe this fixes http://bt.pwmt.org/view.php?id=33

Re: zathura - a document viewer

Is it possible to make Zathura compatible with the numpad for numbers and the +/- symbol?

Also to help with this bug:

https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/23387

Could a .desktop file be included in the Zathura source?

Write it and submit it. mlq has been extraordinarily receptive to community involvement, so there's a very good chance that it will be included.

It does include one, it was just installed into the wrong directory by default. It's fixed now and works for me.

Re: zathura - a document viewer

Zathura is stylish and it does everything I need. The fact that it uses vim keybindings is fantastic.

Thanks for this wonderful pdf viewer. I love it dearly.

Can you guys build the mupdf branch? I'm getting some kind of linker error, unfortunately my experience with C or linking is... underwhelming.

Re: zathura - a document viewer

I was very glad to find this lightweight PDF viewer with a VIMesque approach. One question though.. I'm not able to change the print_command setting through the zathurarc file. If i do that, then I'm greeted with an error message:

sh: lp -d 'color' -P 1  '/home/ardo/docs/main.pdf': No such file or directory

This was obtained by just setting printer_command to the same value it has in config.h

set print_command "lp -d '%s' -P %s %s %s"

If I leave the print_command unchanged then printing with lp works just fine.

I want to change the print command because I need to print using gtklp which allows me to set all kinds of printing options that vary from one file to another. I can get it to work with this:

This gives me what I want, but am I doing it the hard way? Should I be able to achieve the same goal with somehow editing the printer_command setting?

Re: zathura - a document viewer

I'm not sure if this is a problem related to zathura or openbox and adeskbar but zathura opens without a proper icon in the taskbar which is difficult to identify when zathura is minimised. To better understand what I mean, I provide you a screenshot of my taskbar.

Re: zathura - a document viewer

I'm not able to map the BackSpace key in zathura 0.0.8.4-2.

My ~/.config/zathura/zathurarc file has this:

map <BackSpace> scroll full_up

I also tried to define the mapping for normal mode only, but no luck:

map <BackSpace> scroll full_up normal

Has anyone been able to map BackSpace successfully?  Thanks.

*Edit: I got no responses here, so I filed a proper bug report.

Re: zathura - a document viewer

When I copy in Zathura, the text that that gets into the registry is one that is in the same page as the text inside the box, but not exactly the one inside the box. Is anyone else seen this (I guess) bug?

Cheers,
Manolo

How would I select all the text of a document with serveral pages and copy it to clipboard?

Is the visual mode capable to do that?

If you don't mind using tools outside of Zathura, then you could convert the entire document into text (using pdftotext program -- part of poppler package) and extract your wanted portions.

Oh, it seems pdftotext is even smarter than that.  Its manpage shows that it accepts a page range to convert. cool

Re: zathura - a document viewer

Maybe a cardinal sin, but I'd like to see how "emacsy" I can get Zathura, but most of what I put in zathurarc doesn't work.

Like:

map <A-x> focus_inputbar

gives "no valid modifyer given"

What am I doing wrong?

I'm using version 0.8.4.

Re: zathura - a document viewer

Can you please add the functionality to go to the next/previous slides by using left and right arrow keys as only up and down?

The current solution with up/down keys prevents presenters to be able to cycle through a presentation.

Re: zathura - a document viewer

Zathura is a good PDF reader. Thank you for your work.

Are there plans to include continuous scrolling (across pages)?

Also, I recommend you have a look at mupdf which I find significantly faster. Maybe there are clever optimizations in mupdf that zathura could use?
