    evince annotiations

    Hi folks,

    after all annotiations of pdfs arrived on the gnome desktop. After waiting a for a while now, I have installed evince 2.32.0 on my ubuntu 10.04 (which is actually a maverick deb). I've been told that I need poppler 0.15 to actually ADD annotiations. So I went to their website and installed the package from source, the usual way with ./configure - make - make install. Even tried checkinstall to make sure it gets properly installed on my system.

    I can see annotiations in pdf files and have the item in the drop down menu of the sidebar in evince, but I am missing the ADD button (I guess related to poppler being and old package still) in evince, seen in the video here: http://carlosgc.linups.org/img/ev-annots.ogg

    Opening the "about" of evince, it says Document Viewer
    Using poppler/cairo (0.14.3). Why the f*** is evince not using the new poppler 0.15 ???

    Uprading to maverick doesnt seem to fix this since poppler 0.14 is still in the repos.

    Help is appreciated, thanks a lot!!

    Re: evince annotiations

    after installing poppler 0.15 (./configure, make, sudo make install) it says:

    Code:
    Libraries have been installed in:
       /usr/local/lib
    
    If you ever happen to want to link against installed libraries
    in a given directory, LIBDIR, you must either use libtool, and
    specify the full pathname of the library, or use the `-LLIBDIR'
    flag during linking and do at least one of the following:
       - add LIBDIR to the `LD_LIBRARY_PATH' environment variable
         during execution
       - add LIBDIR to the `LD_RUN_PATH' environment variable
         during linking
       - use the `-Wl,-rpath -Wl,LIBDIR' linker flag
       - have your system administrator add LIBDIR to `/etc/ld.so.conf'
    what does that mean??
