xpdf-2.02pl1: description + notes

A Viewer for Portable Document Format (PDF) files.

Xpdf is a viewer for Portable Document Format (PDF) files. PDF files are sometimes called Acrobat files, after Adobe Acrobat (Adobe's PDF viewer). Xpdf is a small and efficient program which uses standard X fonts.

This product installs its X application default files in /usr/freeware/lib/X11/app-defaults, which is not on the default X search path. There are several ways to extend your X search path. The XUSERFILESEARCHPATH, XAPPLRESDIR, XFILESEARCHPATH, and XENVIRONMENT environment variables all affect resource file loading. The easiest methods are to either create a symlink in /usr/lib/X11/app-defaults or to add code similar to this to your startup scripts:

(If XUSERFILESEARCHPATH is already set we append the new directories separated by a colon, otherwise we simply set it to the new colon-separated list. The line wrapping above is for clarity; the actual value should be a single line with no embedded whitespace or backslashes.)
