				 GPdf
				 ====

This is GPdf, a viewer for Portable Document Format (PDF) files for
GNOME. GPdf is based on the Xpdf program and uses additional GNOME
libraries for better desktop integration.

GPdf includes the gpdf application, a Bonobo control for PDF display
which can be embedded in Nautilus, and a Nautilus property page for
PDF files.

Requirements
------------

A GNOME 2.2 (or higher) environment. Later versions are required of
these libraries:

 * gtk+ 2.3.0

 * libbonobo 2.2.1

 * libgnomecanvas 2.3.6 (compiling with older versions is possible,
   clipping was improved in 2.3.6)

 * libgnomeprint 2.5.1 or later

You can get these packages from your favourite GNOME FTP mirror or at
http://ftp.gnome.org/GNOME/sources or from other sources where GNOME
packages are distributed.


Installation
------------

See the file 'INSTALL'

Known Limitations
-----------------

Fonts.

GPdf can use embedded PostScript Type 1 and Truetype fonts with
libgnomeprint 2.3.1 or higher. Type 3 fonts are not supported. Fonts
from fontconfig are substituted for those. As a result, the font
spacing doesn't look optimal.
