Does anyone know of another (small) pdf reader instead of xpdf? I can't get xpdf to talk to my printer, and just wondered what alternatives there are. Would prefer not to go down the Evince route, as that has a lot of Gnome dependencies I believe.

epdfview should be installed in antiX-M7.2 - VETËVENDOSJE!

There is a thread somewhere on this forum getting xpdf to print.

Found it:
Ok, when I try to print a PDF in xPDF, it asks for a command to run. On mine it defaults to just lpr in the field. I changed this to lp and all worked fine.

Hey, many thanks anticapitalista, you are right! Epdfview is installed, and is on the Fluxbox menu under Office>PDF. It also recognises my printer thankfully.

Xpdf - changed the command to 'lp', but it made no difference on my machine. Not a problem though as I can print with Epdfview.

Thanks again.
