The needed djvulibre library is in the build. Trying the DjVu samples
at http://djvu.org/docs/ , Read recognizes it's e.g. a 10-page file.
But I had weird behavior: nothing displayed until I zoomed out, page
back would make machine very slow, zooming in again would hang, etc. I
updated http://dev.laptop.org/ticket/6223#comment:18 ; note this is a

So I updated
http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Release_Notes/8.2.0#Activity_Issues to say:
Read only works well as a PDF viewer. You can start other
file formats in Read from the Journal but may have problems.
Reading the Sugar handbook PDF from the library, zooming to 400% and
then page forward and back (I always click the wrong game pad buttons in
eBook mode :-/ ) leads to really slow performance until Read dies. So I
reopened http://dev.laptop.org/ticket/7090 , sorry if that's the wrong
These could all be manifestations of Evince memory handling.
http://dev.laptop.org/ticket/6002 is closed, upstream is
--> Is there a way to tell that my XO is low on memory, or was low on
memory just before a crash? I don't see anything about low memory in
the Read activity log or sugar logs.
I got the "Keep error" every time I stopped the Read activity, I added
some log output to http://dev.laptop.org/ticket/7843
Thanks for the new software, what's the OLPC PayPal account :)
