      What is PDF digital signatures?

      Does it mean that I can verify that a PDF is authentic and was issued by a trusty party?
      So that for example an invoice is not a fraudulent spoof?

        If the people who sent you the PDF happened to digitally sign it, then yes.

          This is mostly useless until they decide to add HiDPI support to the program.

            Yeah, people keep on hating GTK apps which is fair to some degree, but some GTK apps are much more advanced then their KDE counterparts. gThumb has more features than GwenView and already supported 512px thumbnails and also has HiDPI support. And Lollypop is much more advanced than any KDE music player (besides AmaroK, but development of the KDE 5 version is painfuly slow). Just to name a few examples.

            Nothing against KDE/Plasma btw, happy Plasma user here But it's not always greener on the KDE side, some things are better at the GNOME/GTK side when it comes to app functionality.

              I like Okular. At some point I even installed it on Windows machines using 'KDE for Windows' installer, because it was lighter and handier compared to Adobe Reader

                you should take a look at cantata if you want a "modern amarok" - plus, its extremely lightweight with MPD.

                  Somehow Okular is one of few we-always-use-K-programs worth of mention. Really good pdf viewer - but only for KDE environments. Starts to remind Acrobat X everywhere else - equally bloated and slow to start if one does not runs KDE so does not haves all these huge KDE libs preloaded

                    Yep. I use the Users and Groups tool from Mate and a few other GTK apps with my Plasma Desktop. I don't use anything with a hard dependency on Gnome -- I have to draw a line somewhere and "depends on Gnome" is that line.
