    Just in case you missed the news (the review was commited long time ago, linked just because of the example script to add the opacity menu).

      There are RULES?

      It's just sad that the forums where there are quite a few active open source developers answering questions happens to be essentially unmoderated. When a person posts over two hundred posts that all are flamebaits, rude and factually incorrect and doesn't get banned in a forum where those things are prohibited there's something wrong with the site.
      Well, yes. I agree. It's not just blatant trolling though. The level of courtesy and respect is frighteningly low.

        Yes, fresh kde-4.10.

          Well, that's at least a significant improvement.

          Edit: acroread 9.5.x does zoom levels up to 6400%.
          That's very helpful sometimes.

            Does okular support saving form data? This is the only reason why I sometimes need acroread and can't use evince, and using something that is not acroread would be nice.Hmm, evince only goes to 400%. That's usually enough, but it

              Nice logic. Gnomes shell is as scriptable as stuff can get. Thank you for making this clear. Im pretty sure alot of KDE users now will refrain from stupid attacks on gnome.

              Still KDE removed a feature. Lol.

                I always thought this a limitation of poppler, which is also the PDF rendering backend of okular.
                Not sure how they [okular devs] finally implemented tiled rendering.

                  Just to prove that KDE is dying and nobody is intereted in using it:
                  http://www.damnocrazy.com/22/arc-ser...e-410-released

                  @entropy:
                  Poppler allows to just render a specific region of the PDF, at least for the Image backend.

                    Yes, I managed to track the problem to it not being implemented in poppler. Wasn't sure okular used the same. So, still need fr acroread then :/

                      funkSTAR keeps saying that Qt is 'bad' because it's owned by Digia but isn't it LGPL? Yeah, everyone would prefer non-copy left license I think but is there a framework like Qt which is not copyleft? Actually only framework with features like Qt I can think of is GLib+GTK and it definitely is LGPL.

                      Moreover glib/gtk/gnome have very weird design with C language as default, which results in bloated API, just to facilitate easy python, perl bindings. Qt is C++ and it has perl & python bindings. I just can not see why would anybody go with C for anything. C++ can be used in the same way as C, results in the same assembly when used as C but provides whole new world of possibilities when desired. (I'm talking about syntax only and not STL library!!!)

                      Anyway, could somebody tell me in what state glib/gtk C++ wrappers are? I just may try using glib/gtk framework however I'm definitely going for C++ because I've already seen how many lines can one inheritance 'definition' take in C.
