Re: Is there a pdf viewer with multi thread support?

Hello phd21, thank you for your answer. I'm using calibre for organizing my library. Unfortunately both tools don't work too good as pdf reader. On the other hand I'm pretty happy you mentioned xnview because I never realised they went multiplatform since I left windows :D Now I have my favorite ima...

Is there a pdf viewer with multi thread support?

Hello,

is there a pdf viewer with multi thread support?

I search through a lot of pdf files with 700-1000 pages and it takes quite some time which I'm trying to solve. Seems only one of my six cores is used and maxed out.

Thanks

LibreOffice in LM18 - garbled text

Hallo, did anyone find a fix for the garbled text problem? During the beta time some people had the same problem, still existing for me.

Re: Linux Mint may be too fiddly for my continued use

Linux is an excellent community response to Windows. However it would definitely benefit from a bit more "paid vision" in order to see where it can and should go. I would pony up some more bucks over time if Linux made some efforts to professionalize its development cycle. I think we need to distin...

Re: Browser Suggestions

Chromium from repositories is always at least one version behind the last stable chrome version (not really desired for a browser).
