The world of free PDF-Readers for Microsoft Windows just got a little bit larger. With the release of GNOME 2.28 Evince, the PDF-Reader of the GNOME desktop enviroment, has been ported to windows…
It’s pretty simple to install Evince on windows. Go to live.gnome.org, download the .msi file and run the installer by double clicking on the file.
The installer itself has a few edges. On my system it didn’t create a entry inside the start menu, and the evince icon on the desktop doesn’t have a picture. But Evince runs fine.
Finally there’s new alternative to Adobe Reader, let’s hope that Evince can establish a little bit more open source on the windows desktop.
