Very light weight PDF viewer, with very good support for RTL languages like Arabic, Hebrew ... (Document language, viewer page layout, ..)

Like the options "trim margin" and "invert colour". Together with the right Qt setting, it is just perfect for dark mode people like me!

Debian Testing HP Officejet Pro 8600 with HP native printer correctly installed. CUPS 1.7.5 HPCUPS 3.14.6 qpdfview 0.4.12

It uses Qt-native printing dialog, however:

  • completely ignores Duplex setting. If I set it to long-side duplex once, it will duplex all the time. I have made sure its set to off, also in CUPS web interface it is set to OFF, nevertheless it prints in LongEdge Duplex after I once used it.

  • lists supported papers, but only few are selectable. For example it lists A4, A4 small margins and A4 borderless; but only A4 small margins is selectable. If I select this, then text gets CUT as if it does not scale the input image, but instead cuts the margins off. A workaround (!) is to select the only available A4 small margins, then set borders to zero manually. For every print.

  • There is no option to preview the result. Very primitive.

VERY BAD FOR PRINTING! And no djvu support...
