"Ocular is actually Okular."

Ha! After using it for 10 years you'd think I know how to spell it. X_X
Sorry about that.

We haven't heard from Onunga as to whether their problem is solved.

These days Evince is default on deb based distros.

Sometimes the PDF has certain restrictions placed upon it.
My wife always gets various password protected pdf files and also fdf files.
Sometimes the only way to view these files is with Acrobat, sorry to say.
I did see a post last week about adjusting the MIME type to get past these restrictions.

Maybe the Nitro plugin for Firefox can open these special pdf files.
Or how about Google Docs?

Come on Onunga, we gotta know if your problem has been solved.

I'll join the bandwagon and suggest zathura. It's keyboard-oriented, optional vi-like commands, and a rare blend of meek and awesome.
Also you can instantly flip between inverted colours, so white text over black background for easy reading and back to normal if there are any graphics.
