Hi guys,

I just switched to okular because it looks like kpdf is being discontinued. Everything seems to work fine except for the bullets that kpdf showed but not okular (it shows "q"s instead). The pdf file was generated with latex.

They are both kde, so what am I missing?

Thanks a bunch!

Efo

Still no luck,

I wonder if there is a library I have to install, or maybe a flag?
Here is what I have:
USE="crypt handbook jpeg pdf ps tiff (-aqua) -chm -debug -djvu -ebook (-kdeprefix)"

I think kpdf is still much better that okular. My latex pdfs look like crap in okular, in kpdf they are fine (I mean the font, letters appear somehow dim, some lines are nearly transparent and the letters are not aligned). So hopefully this will improve in the future, at least before kpdf becomes masked.

Hi Gh0str1d3r,

Nice to see I am not alone, I started to think I was the only one with this problem. My fonts look ok in okular though, I just have the bullets problem... there must be something I am missing.
I was very happy with kpdf, but unfortunately it is already masked for amd64. Since it is going to be discontinued I figured I would set up okular before I will really need it.

Thank you for keeping this thread alive.

I guess one problem is the missing antialiasing support of okular (or at least I do not see where to activate it).

Hi VoidMage,

Thank you for joining us.
I made a little pdf (15K) file where the problem can be seen in the page bullets as well as in the legend bullets (it works with acroread).
Now, here is the embarrassing part... how can I send you this file? :oops:

Just a minor thing: you've never mentioned which version of okular you're talking about
and, as you're talking about pdfs, which version of poppler you're using.

Here are the packages:

dev-libs/poppler-0.10.7
kde-base/okular-4.3.1

I mentioned it before, but just in case "amd64"

Unfortunately, okular (at 4.3.2 currently) even sucks as a chm viewer even though it used the same chmlib as kchmviewer.

xpdf is fine, but that UI just kills me.

There's supposed to be a bug in font rendering fixed in poppler 0.12.1,
that affected okular, but probably a different one.
Could you see if xpdf does any better with your pdf,
to see if that's okular only, or more like poppler/font matching problem.

On Gentoo, xpdf is little more than motif interface around most basic poppler
backend.

fonts in xpdf are as ugly as in okular. Unfortunately, kpdf depends on poppler-0.10.7, so I cannot update to poppler-0.12.1 without unmerging it. but that I do not dare until I know for sure that there is an alternative...

Considering this post - no pain, no gain. But that's still not the bullet problem.

Hi VoidMage,

Sorry for the late response, I was out of town the past few days.

xpdf gave me the same problem before the update.
Now I updated poppler:
[I--] [ ] app-text/poppler-data-0.2.1 (0)
[I--] [ ~] app-text/poppler-utils-0.12.1 (0)
[I--] [ ~] dev-libs/poppler-0.12.1 (0)
[I--] [ ~] dev-libs/poppler-glib-0.12.1 (0)
[I--] [ ~] dev-libs/poppler-qt4-0.12.1 (0)
[I--] [ ~] virtual/poppler-0.12.1 (0)
[I--] [ ~] virtual/poppler-glib-0.12.1 (0)
[I--] [ ~] virtual/poppler-qt4-0.12.1 (0)
[I--] [ ~] virtual/poppler-utils-0.12.1 (0)

But I still have the same problem with okular ([I--] [ ] kde-base/okular-4.3.1 (4.3))

If I try to run xpdf ([I--] [ ] app-text/xpdf-3.02-r2 (0)) I get:

xpdf: error while loading shared libraries: libpoppler.so.4: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
object file: No such file or directory

If I try "ln -s libpoppler.so.5 libpoppler.so.4" and I run xpdf I get:
xpdf: Symbol `_ZTV9OutputDev' has different size in shared object, consider re-linking

If I "emerge xpdf" I get:
...
GlobalParams.cc:2831: error: no matching function for call to 'CMapCache::getCMap(GooString*&, GooString*&)'
/usr/include/poppler/CMap.h:119: note: candidates are: CMap* CMapCache::getCMap(GooString*, GooString*, Stream*)
make: *** [GlobalParams.o] Error 1
...

Any idea?

I dont think r4 is in the tree:

[U] app-text/xpdf

Anyway, I get:

The funny thing is that if I use r3 I dont get an error but it tries to re-emerge r2:

These are the packages that would be merged, in order:

Thanks ssuominen, I cant believe I missed that!

It went through and compiled nicely, xpdf works; but I still have the same problem: I have "s" and "q" instead of bullets whether I use okular or xpdf. (note: I have bullets in acroread and I had bullets when kpdf was installed).

In that case, this may be a font matching problem.
Probably it can be fixed on fontconfig level, but
I barely grasp the basics of it.

Thanks for the help VoidMage,

Hopefully someone who had the same problem will pop in. There must be a way since it worked with kpdf, I just dont know what the basic differences are.

If it's font matching problem, then you've already had the font

It's simply a matter of wrong priority - a font that has
a less correct glyph set is preferred.
