It would be really nice if rockbox could display pdf files.

i would like to see this feature also.

ofer commented on 2006-02-27 11:39

sure would love to see that , could really use it

gh commented on 2006-03-12 13:41

Displaying only the text would be useful (and readable) enough.

imi commented on 2006-08-22 11:18

This is severe! It would save my life… but would need picture output, zoom, and goto-page function.

Joshua Meadows commented on 2007-01-19 15:45

I also would like this feature. You could even use it to browse the rockbox manual

Haseeb commented on 2007-03-19 02:14

great idea

Julien commented on 2007-03-24 18:43

yes, text would be great
but with pictures it would be even better, but it isn’t necessary

Henry Lawson commented on 2007-04-16 07:00

why dont you guys just convert your pdf files to jpg? then you can view and read those? sure you loose the ability to navigate using the chapters but i think it would be a decent alternative.

Danilo commented on 2007-11-29 12:18

would be really nice, i’d welcome a pdf reader with 2 modes, one to watch it with pics, and one text-only mode. commented on 2008-02-15 05:40

It is not practical to transform a whole heap of multi-page PDF files (scientific journal papers, in my case) into JPGs. Just not practical. Of course, the best solution would be to find another piece of hardware more suitable for that task (PDA, iPod touch, iPod phone, eBook reader), but I already have an iPod, and it runs RockBox, unlike most of those other devices.

wordeful idea

Steve Bavin commented on 2008-05-27 09:08 might be something that could be ported? It’s GPLv2, but I’ve not looked at the code.

Panagiotis Papadopoulos commented on 2008-10-10 19:20

any news?

Jens Erdmann commented on 2008-10-21 21:16

I would prefer bookr, that is the document reader for Homebrew.
It supports pdf rendering natively.

Its GPL too and written in c/c++.

Calvin Walden commented on 2009-08-18 20:26

+1. Would love it

Alex commented on 2010-02-01 05:17

I would love one as well, I just export stuff into txt files from AcrobatReader right now, but that is more of a workaround then a solution.
