Suggestion on pdf reader


Hi folks,

I'm going to install .pdf reader. What you would recommend, Acrobat Reader, Xpdf or any other else? Copy function is expected. TIA

B.R.

There's gpdf that comes with GNOME and KDE also comes with one. I know gpdf doesn't have a copy function though. Not sure about KDE's. Adobe Reader definitely does though, and it looks the same as the Windows version.

Hi kjordan,

Tks for your advice.

Adobe Reader definitely can do the job but taking up lot of space. If I can't find other lightweight pdf reader, I'll try Xpdf. IIRC, it also has copying function.
