Widgetless option?
Xpdf is a great viewer. It is fast and easily configurable. I only wonder if there is a way to suppress the widgets (scrollbars and toolbars) so that the pdf document covers the whole window (i.e., something similar to what the --widgetless option in gv does, but without the pagebar).

What sort of problem are you seeing?

If you're getting scrambled text, the problem is that Xpdf 3.00 doesn't work correctly with FreeType 2.1.8 and newer -- they changed the way CID font encodings are handled. The upcoming Xpdf 3.01 release will fix that problem.

xpdf runs well and this is unusual.

OpenMotif (http://www.openmotif.org/) is available (in source form) for any open source OS.

Alternatively, LessTif (http://www.lesstif.org/) is available under the LGPL.

It apparently needs Motif and Motif isn't free. (and there are no packages for my system).
