djvu files?
« on: March 06, 2009, 05:39:07 AM »
Anyone know of a good app that reads djvu files? I tried installing DJVuLibre, but all of the downloads were rogue files (in my opinion), so I don't want anything to do with that app. I don't need anything with lots of bells and whistles, just a simple app to read the djvu files.

As usual, your input is very much appreciated!
Kind Regards,

I have been using WinDjView. It's quite nice. Kind of feels like a PDF reader.

djvu files can also be viewed in IrfanView but you have to install an additional plugin.

I tried viewing djvu files with IrfanView and that's worked in my limited testing -- but I find myself pressing the space bar to try to view the next page (some how the brain hasn't rewired to work with Control + PageUp / PageDown just yet).  This, understandably, leads to the "display next file in the current directory" behavior, which makes sense, but... :(  The last viewed page doesn't appear to be remembered (at least not AFAICT) either...

I've reverted to trying WinDjView and djview -- not quite sure which I prefer just yet.

Why are you starting with the alternatives? I would have thought the natural thing was to start with any official thingy???

Thanks for the suggestion.  I downloaded the plug-in and tried it out a bit.  I didn't realize that the package comes w/ DjVuViewer.exe, an executable that can be used without a web browser -- I had the opposite impression when looking at the name "Lizardtech Official DjVu Browser Plug-in" and the system requirements (IE 5 or later, Mozilla 1.0 or later-based browser).

Unfortunately, the plug-in doesn't appear to be as portable as I like (e.g. it appears to modify file associations w/o asking) and I didn't succeed in getting DjVuViewer.exe to view a djvu file when I passed the name of a djvu file to it on the command line, so ATM I think I'll be continuing to evaluate other options.

(FWIW, I didn't start w/ IrfanView -- my initial testing was w/ WinDjView and djview (in DjVuLibre).  Being able to comfortably use IrfanView might have been nice as that'd be one less thing to look after ("system administration"-wise).  Perhaps this will be some additional incentive for my brain to rewire ;) )
