The document viewer is I think the best for reading pdf files, but after I formatted my PC, it doesn't remember the last page I was on, how can I configure the default ubuntu document viewer to remember the last page I was on before I closed the pdf the last time?
evince stores the last page and per-document viewing options by default, in typical GNOME fashion, cannot even deactivate it.
The information is stored in two files in
home-<4bytes>.log. If you delete them,
evince should generate new ones after the next start of the program and work as expected.
