epdfview in QEMU

[edit] Descripton

The program epdfview is PDF reader for handhelds using gtk+ and libpoppler.

Alternatively, evince is in the standard repos, if you don't mind some gnome dependencies - only a few megabytes.

[edit] Build

It can be build using the extra DISTRO_EXTRA_RDEPENDS epdfview in build/conf/local.conf.

There is a binary version available for download here (at your own risk). You may need to install libglib-2.0-0 (>= 2.16.4), libcairo2 (>= 1.6.4). Read below how to install the missing packages.

There is a newer version available here.

opkg install poppler_0.8.4-r0_armv4t.ipk

opkg install epdfview_0.1.6-r3_armv4t.ipk

Unfortunately the last command still fails missing the packages:

* ERROR: Cannot satisfy the following dependencies for libpoppler-glib3:

Please note that missing packages is a subjective problem, depending on previous programs that were/weren't installed.

The problem can be fixed searching and downloading the missing packages with KnjMokoOPKG available Here. You may also issue the simple "$ opkg install <name of package>" in terminal once connected to Internet, or search http://www.opkg.org/packages/ for a package.

The most reecent version of libglib-2.0-dev that I could find for armv4 is 2.16.3-r0.

Descripton

The program epdfview is PDF reader for handhelds using gtk+ and libpoppler.

Alternatively, evince is in the standard repos, if you don't mind some some gnome dependencies - only a few megabytes.

Build

It can be build using the extra DISTRO_EXTRA_RDEPENDS epdfview in build/conf/local.conf.

There is a binary version available for download here (at your own risk). However when I tried to install it on the new om2008.8 distribution I got:

root@om-gta02:/var/volatile/tmp# opkg install epdfview_0.1.6-r2_armv4t.ipk
Installing epdfview (0.1.6-r2) to root...
Collected errors:
 * ERROR: Cannot satisfy the following dependencies for epdfview:
         *  libglib-2.0-0 (>= 2.16.4) *  libcairo2 (>= 1.6.4) *

Update (Sjors 07:21, 10 August 2008 (UTC)): there is a newer version available here.

opkg install poppler_0.8.4-r0_armv4t.ipk

opkg install epdfview_0.1.6-r3_armv4t.ipk

Unfortunately the last command still fails:

 * ERROR: Cannot satisfy the following dependencies for libpoppler-glib3:

The most reecent version of libglib-2.0-dev that I could find for armv4 is 2.16.3-r0. Are these bleading edge files even necessary?
