I've been trying to use XPDF but it is the absolutly slowest PDF viewer ever. Not really usable as far as I can tell. The pdf viewer for Qtopia was sooooo nice. Is there anyway to get it going on Cacko? Thanks!

We are aware of the speed problems - the next release will solve many of the general problems with speed..
C760 running pdaXrom lastest ;-)
SL5500 Running Cacko Qtopia
512 MB SD Card, 128 MB CF Card, Prism2 CF Wlan.

yeah, I'm back :-)  (first post, reverse time order read) ..

ya, I took 1.0.1 w/ xpdf on my trip and lots of pdfs to read, but the
fonts were all blocky and I could only see 1/2 the page (left/right/left/right)
when I made the font large enough to read.  :-<

just reader just says missing file and aborts.

I have a todo list of things to get working in 1.1.0 release (I see rc5 went
out while I was away) ... and one of those is a decent/working xpdf!

The speed wasn't too bad... slow on load, but otherwise ok.  But the fonts
made it unreadable/unusable.
