Evince document viewer

Postby tomcat1965 » Sat Jan 06, 2007 12:50 pm

I think Evince should be replaced by Xpdf or similar as it's still suffering from the buffer overflow bug on certain pdf's,I thought this had been fixed as it's a definite security vunerability,and will send cpu usage to 100%. Doesn't seem to be affected by all pd's though I just downloaded the latest pdf from PCLinuxOS

and usedn Evince to view it and....cpu 100%, Adobe and Xpdf both fine.
