I remember when xpdf was removed, epdfview was recommended as a
lightweight alternative. How about this time?

Best,
Benda

I personally migrated to evince a while ago. It is a bit GNOME, TBH but
doesn't really pull in much. And is definitely less buggy.

Have you gave a try to app-text/mupdf?
It is very lightweight and does not depends on poppler.

app-text/qpdfview is not bad (though I prefer okular).

app-text/zathura-meta

(zathura supports both poppler and mupdf backends but only poppler
backend is in Portage for now because our mupdf package sucks wrt bugs
407805 and 407807)

Try apvlv. Note, you *MUST* first build poppler with the
"xpdf-headers" USE flag. Only then will apvlv build properly. I've
reported this bug, and I assume that the apvlv ebuild will be changed to
look for the app-text/poppler[xpdf-headers] before proceeding further.

It's already marked RESOLVED/FIXED, which may be why it doesn't turn
up in your search.
