Fresh Evince Package Available

Hi everybody,

As promissed, I have just released a new version of evince package, and this one is the smallest package ever. First of all, as we don't need libgnomeprintui anymore, we save about 2794 KB. Second, I have generated only the dictionaries supported by the device. With this we saved about 885 KB. Total memory saved: 3679 KB. Cool!!! :D

But the most attractive and coolest feature in this version is that you are able to scroll the document using the stylus, just like you do when you use Browser and the default PDF reader.

So for these reasons I strongly recommend you to to download and install this new version. And don't forget to uninstall libgnomeprintui package, unless of course, you have gnumeric installed.

Evince With Optional Print Support

I was planning to write something about the enhancement bug I had opened yesterday at work before I went home, but I had no time to do it. When I opened my mail box today morning it was already done. The Evince maintainer, Nickolay Shmyrev, was faster than me and applied the patch I have attached to the bug. Sweet!

For now on, If you want to disable printing support in Evince, just need to run the configure scritp with --disable-gnome-print. As result we will have something like the following screenshots:

The good news about it is we are free of libgnomeprintui dependency, specially in Maemo Platform. Unfortunately, this weekend i will not have time to do it, but i will provide the new package as soon as possible.

After some discussion in maemo-developers mail list, finally Wolfgang Karall found the solution to make Gnumeric icon appear in Maemo task switcher. As result, you should have something like this:

It's alive!!

I'd like to thank Wolfgan very much and recommend you to download the new version of the package here.
