PDF on DICE

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

The default PDF reader on SL7 is evince. Note that it does not support advanced PDF features such as editing and annotation. For more details see a comparison of features.

We do not recommend the use of acroread (except where evince will not render the document) because:

  • It was discontinued in 2013
  • It almost certainly has unpatched security problems
  • It is now extremely unreliable
  • It is not open source so its problems cannot be fixed
  • It may well shortly be impossible even to install on SL7.
