Pdf On C1000 With Cacko
« on: February 21, 2006, 10:15:13 pm »
I downloaded a C1000 startup manual in pdf then discovered that
I do not appear to have a pdf viewer on my Cacko equipped C1000.

Anyone know of a ipk for a Cacko-friendly pdf reader, please?

Thanks!  doc

Go here
and download qpdf2_render-freetype-2.3.0-070505a-1_arm.ipk

It may or may not need the following 2 dependencies. This depends on if Cacko already have these installed:
1. libfreetype_6.3.4-1_arm.ipk
2. libt1_1.3.0-1_arm.ipk
What I would do, is try to install qpdf2 first and see if the installer complains about missing libraries, or something to that effect.
I've listed below the package description and dependencies, as listed in the ("Packages" file), which is also in the same directory as above ipk's.
