Description Emmanuel Kowalski 2007-02-11 07:51:19 UTC
Description of problem:
On my laptop (a recent Dell D820), the standalone djview displays djvu
files very slowly (up to 3 or 4 seconds per page). On the other hand, the
browser plugin displays the same files instantaneously (with Firefox).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Download a djvu file (e.g. 
2. View the file from the command line with djview.
3. Optionally, browse to see the same file.
Actual results:
Display is very slow in 2. and quite fast in 3.

Expected results:
The same speed whether using the standalone viewer or plugin.

Additional info:
The laptop has 2GB of Ram. The video card is an NVidia GeForce Go 7300
with 256 MB video memory, using the nv driver.

I compiled the 3.5.18 release from the src.rpm file on djvulibre.org,
and the resulting viewer does not have this issue.

Since 3.5.18 has been working fine for me and for you, and since I've received
no bug reports regarding it, I've pushed the 3.5.18 update to FC-5 and FC-6.
Please let me know if those packages also fix that slowness issue.

The new release djvulibre-3.5.18-1.fc6 resolves the problem.
