Zathura edges


My setup:
- Slackware 14.2
- zathura 0.3.8

My ~/.config/zathura/zathurarc:
Code:
set recolor true
set recolor-darkcolor "#dcdccc"
set recolor-lightcolor "#1f1f1f"
Problem: I cannot get rid of grey edges no matter how much I zoom in. If I scroll to the edge, then I can see it.

[Edit] I tried to use mupdf (0.3.2) plugin but it does not help.

Hello uninstance! Happy New Year!

I'm unclear to what you're referring to as "grey edges" in the post above. Do you mean the frame of the reader? Or are you referring to that #dcdccc grey bar at the very top of the image?

Ah! Thanks for the quick reply and the highlighted image. Unfortunately, I'm not that familiar with this application. I thought that border area was supposed be there.

I'm sure you've seen THIS already.

Others are evidently having the same issues with different Linuxes. I don't see any solutions there, though, other than another thread that blamed out-of-date Zathura.

How did you install this app on Slack? SlackBuild? Also, there are similar issues posted on the list at the Zathura Github site.

Sorry I couldn't be more helpful. I'd be curious to know if you resolve this. Please update us, if you can.

Regards,

~Eric

SlackBuilds, right (link in the first post). There are guys on arch wiki who have solved the problem by reinstalling the app from AUR, therefore newer version solves (may solve) frame problem.
However, quote from SlacBuilds zathura page:
Quote:
zathura 0.3.8 is the last possible update for Slackware
14.2. Newer versions would require a newer gtk+3.

Hmm... an bug issue with the SlackBuild?

Not much else I can suggest to you at this point.

Stand by for further assistance... hopefully.

Hi.
Have you tried to set up 'default-bg' option? In my zathurarc i have
Code:
set default-bg "#bdbdbd"
It looks like this - https://i.imgur.com/s2x7Hyz.png. Try to set background color like the one in your document. To determine the document color you can use gimp.

Strange, I have Zathura 0.3.8 from SBo running on Slack 14.2 (with awesomewm 4.3) and I've not seen this particular issue. My zathurarc:
Code:
set recolor true
set recolor-lightcolor "#9f9f9f"
set recolor-darkcolor "#0f0f0f"

set guioptions ""
set window-icon "/usr/share/pixmaps/zathura.png"

set selection-clipboard "clipboard"
set synctex-editor-command "emacs"

set font "monospace normal 10"

Do you see the same problem with a different window manager?

You still have it but in different color. You cannot view text on a page close to the edges.

Of course, i still have them. You can't just cut this area. I guess there are two ways to mask this: change bg color or switch to floating layout and fit window.

Sorry, don't know what you mean by viewing page close to the edges - https://i.imgur.com/fDms7c2.jpg, https://i.imgur.com/bdPgoEB.jpg//

Progressively zooming in on a PDF in Zathura looks like this for me: 1, 2, 3 (here you can see the black PDF border is gone completely).

I'd still want to know if your problem persists in a different window manager (XFCE/xfwm4 for example).
