I am trying to open a .pdf file with FoxitReader from the terminal.
The following works on the terminal:
But this doesn't:
/opt/foxitsoftware/foxitreader/FoxitReader "Document.pdf /A page=5"
It launches the FoxitReader GUI application, displaying "the file could not be found". The document has more than 5 pages.
- Foxit Reader version is 2.4.1.0609
- Ubuntu 16.04
is this option not available for linux systems? Did the syntax change? Do I need to install a plugin?
I also tried
/opt/foxitsoftware/foxitreader/FoxitReader -h /opt/foxitsoftware/foxitreader/FoxitReader --help
but it fails to open these, too :(
Edit: I attempted the same in Adobe Acrobat Reader
/opt/Adobe/Reader9/bin/acroread /A "page=3" "Document.pdf"
with the same result. As always, instructions are documented for windows. I tried a couple of other PDF viewer now...
is there any free PDF reader able to:
- run in linux
- open PDF at a specific page
- highlight text
- display page in full view (optional)
