Nupdf v0.2 release
« on: April 30, 2010, 09:18:50 pm »
well now that the coding competition is over (didn't win, but in the top 10 just   :D) here's a proper release, i highly recommend upgrading to this version, and i won't be accepting bugs from old versions.

incase you don't know what this is all about, nupdf is a pdf reader for the dingoo, and nanonote, written by me  ;D

oh and READ THE README!!!  :P

For me, it's a very useful app. I don't understand how they (dingoo brand owners) didn't make a pdf reader for native fw.

Thank you so much darfgarf. Dingux and You (developers and others) make this little device worth every cent I have payed.

Sorry for the crappy english

+ karma, obviously  :)

You just see the pdf document and controls are mapped to buttons

well thanks for the support guys, it really does give motivation to continue pumping out programs/etc, as opposed to people just whining about all the niggly problems etc  ;D

I haven't been able to open any pdf files with Nupdf on my NanoNote.

Can someone please point me to a pdf file that is known to work with Nupdf on the NanoNote so I can test?

Thanks,

Anything that is smaller than NanoNote's ram size and doesn't contain very exotic characters (like ie. nepali, but chinese/japanese is fine). Some other extraordinary features like stuff embedded into a pdf might crash it as well.
So far it loaded all of the pdf ebooks I tried.

Thanks for your reply, Zear. I must be doing something wrong. I've tried several different files, including this simple one:

http://tldp.org/HOWTO/pdf/Man-Page.pdf

They all crash my NN with a blank screen.

I have the file nupdf and the data folder in my /usr/bin/

I'm using the 2010-05-07 release.

Thanks in advance to anyone who can offer advice.

try running with ./nupdf foo.pdf 2>log
or maybe without the 2, pretty sure i put all the errors on stderr

(works fine for me on both the dingoo and the nanonote, so looks like you're launching it wrong  :P), nothing should crash to a black screen anyway, i fixed all the big crashes for the 0.2 release: http://dl.openhandhelds.org/cgi-bin/dingoo.cgi?0,0,0,0,113,345 )

Yes, you are quite right. When I cd to the directory where nupdf is located and call it with

# ./nupdf /path/to/my/doc.pdf

It works perfectly.

What I was trying to do before was to put the nupdf program and data folder in a directory in my PATH, then cd to my document directory, and call it from there with

# nupdf doc.pdf

What a great program! Thanks for helping me to get it working.

 ;D anytime (within reason), it should work like that, as long as it calls the program, and gives the full path to the pdf, i'll probably look into it when i get working on the improvements though, see if there's actualyl a problem

I test 50MB file, works very good, but very very slow page load, maybe some speed patch?

using an a330? or a 320 with swap? (if you're using swap it will be very slow)

generally i can't speed it up on the loading unless i load the pages in the background (complicated and needing more ram), without re-writing the entire fitz library

It works without swap on A320 (200 pages, text + pictures ), I wait very long for load page (zoom is little faster). I need some index option or fast jump to x page.
