So, here's something to try:
Use 'pdftoppm' to convert pdf to ppm, then use 'seejpeg' to view the ppm using svgalib.
I tried this but it does not seem to work right out of the box. When I issue in the terminal without X:
I get :
svgalib: ark: Unknown chiptype 0.
Warning: you have not yet configured your mouse type. If you have no mouse,
setting the type to `none' in /etc/vga/libvga.config will get rid of this
svgalib: Failed to initialize mouse.
Cannot find a 32K/16M colour video mode
svgalib: Signal 8: Floating point exception received.
If I issue the same command in the kde konsole I get:
svgalib: can't open /dev/console
Is there somewhere a guide on configuring this to work?
