From your screenshot, the "diagonal lines" are present outside of the kpdf window. So this is unlikely to be kpdf's fault. More likely a mis-configuration within Xwindows, and more specifically, your video card and its driver.

But you have not given us any information about your linux distro, video chipset or window-manager. Linux isn't windows, and even if you were running windows, don't you think you should be telling us whether it's 3.1, 98, XP, 2K, NT, or vista? They are all different, so is linux.

So, nobody can help you until you learn to help yourself.

Please read all of this link:
Then you'll be welcome back here with a proper question
