After upgrading from Ubuntu 11.04 to 11.10 and Okular seems to be not working properly. When I open a pdf document, it says 'Reloading the document ...' again and again and an hour glass is shown. The problem is intermittent and happened with the following pdf. Has anyone had similar experience?
I downloaded your pdf and I can confirm that Okular has no problems opening it. However, there's a nice feature in Okular that makes it to reload a document whenever the file on disk is changed.
You can reproduce this by opening a terminal window and issuing
while the same file is open in Okular. Or even
this will cause Okular to reload the document repeatedly.
I'm not quite sure what was "touching" the file in your case - do you have this file synced with Ubuntu One or Dropbox? Maybe some backup program?
However, the power of KDE is in the amount of knobs programs have :) If it ever bothers you again, go to Settings - Configure Okular - General and un-tick "Reload document on file change"
In you're curious, you can install
