I cannot open
djvu files by
qpdfview-djvu-plugin is installed. I really like
qpdview and don't want to use other applications. Any suggestions?
The underlying problem is that Qt5's QMimeDatabase changed DjVu MIME type from "image/vnd.djvu" to "image/vnd.djvu+multipage". It's already fixed in
0.4.16 but it's not yet available in any repository at the time of writing despite being released 9 months ago.
Workaround is to build the updated package yourself:
wget https://launchpad.net/qpdfview/trunk/0.4.16/+download/qpdfview-0.4.16.tar.gz sudo apt build-dep qpdfview apt source qpdfview cd qpdfview-0.4.14 uupdate ../qpdfview-0.4.16.tar.gz cd ../qpdfview-0.4.16 dpkg-buildpackage -us -uc -nc cd .. sudo dpkg -i qpdfview_0.4.16-0ubuntu1_*.deb qpdfview-djvu-plugin_0.4.16-0ubuntu1_*.deb
This is a comment on the answer of int_ua (but I'm not allowed to comment):
On second thoughts this is not so great. For complicated reasons, after doing this it seems I then have the choice of not using qpdfview for ps files, or never being able to install any new packages. I have asked for help with this here:
To echo the original question: I really like qpdfview and don't want to use other applications.
