Sub_title: An OpenGL Presentation Viewer on a Spinning Cube

You need Xorg_Full for this to work as it needs GL.

Basically you give it a PDF and it turns it into a 3D slideshow. Currently cube transitions are all that's supported but the author has plans to add more.

It's a command line program but I've packaged it with a GUI frontend that's not very thoroughly tested.

It's also packaged with the gtkglext library and the libboost program options libraries that it needs.

Hi lobster,

i had a go at it in lucid 528 and it works Smile

but....... it only works properly in my pimped up remaster Sad

in a vanilla lucid it's working, the cube spins, but the page doesn't progress. I can't figure out what the problem is.

anyway, i'll post it here in case someone can work it out.

Hi all,

First time I tried it, there were spaces in the filename of the pdf I wanted to view. No-go.
Replaced the spaces with dashes, got the pdf displayed, pages progressed but as a 'flat' file, no cube.
Figured out that if I wanted the cube to revolve, I needed to put the page numbers in the 'transition' box, as in:
1 2 3 4 5
with spaces between the numbers. Then it worked fine.

Would be nice if it had a default setting of transition at each page.

Also if the pdf page is portrait, it only displays the top half - no way to view the bottom of that page, it just goes to the next page.
