I would like to use native xpdf (compiled from ports) for viewing pdf
files, but it's almost impossible,, since for many pdf's it can't find
used fonts and of course doesn't show any text.
The question would be, why? ;)
BTW, statically linked xpdf for linux which I downloaded from foolabs.com
(ftp://ftp.foolabs.com/pub/xpdf/xpdf-3.00-linux.tar.gz) shows everything.

Everything looks like:
$ xpdf ~/sample.pdf
Error: Couldn't create a font for 'BAAAAA+TimesNewRomanPSMT'
$ ~/tmp/xpdf-3.00-linux/xpdf ~/sample.pdf

I've put this pdf (generated with StarOffice) at:

$ ldd `which xpdf`

I'm running 5.2-CURRENT, if this means something ;)
