Opening large PDF files in GNU/Linux: muPDF comes to the rescue

I was recently given an ebook by a friend. It was a photography book, with tons of hi-res images and very little text. When I opened it with Ubuntu, Evince (the default PDF viewer that comes with Ubuntu) gave in: after a few pages, it slowed to a crawl. I did a bit of research, and found the program that rescued my viewing needs: MuPDF. The good news was that I could finally read my book.

Fedora 22 Xfce and beyond

I’m a very happy GNOME user, but on my old 32 bit laptop I wanted to try something else and so my only candidate when it comes to a Spin, is Xfce. Not that the default configuration is very good, but it uses GTK libraries and if needed I can easily install also GNOME applications.

In this short blogpost I’d like to go beyond the normal setup and just share what I did to make Xfce working as desired. The installation of the Spin is really easy and fast, no useless applications are on board and the user really can choose what he likes more. There’s just a small “but”…..yes, settings are not working always and it depends on your usecase if the solution is easy or hard to achieve. Fedora 22 comes with the latest 4.12 Xfce release, which is so much better than 4.10 but still not perfect.

Some services line Netflix have an annoying geolocation restriction that made them unavailable outside the United States. In case of Netflix, this is due to licensing issues. It's not a slim difference: do you want to be able to access just over one thousand movies, or would you prefer to have access to over thirteen thousand movies?
