Just to prove that KDE is dying and nobody is intereted in using it:
Poppler allows to just render a specific region of the PDF, at least for the Image backend.
funkSTAR keeps saying that Qt is 'bad' because it's owned by Digia but isn't it LGPL? Yeah, everyone would prefer non-copy left license I think but is there a framework like Qt which is not copyleft? Actually only framework with features like Qt I can think of is GLib+GTK and it definitely is LGPL.
Moreover glib/gtk/gnome have very weird design with C language as default, which results in bloated API, just to facilitate easy python, perl bindings. Qt is C++ and it has perl & python bindings. I just can not see why would anybody go with C for anything. C++ can be used in the same way as C, results in the same assembly when used as C but provides whole new world of possibilities when desired. (I'm talking about syntax only and not STL library!!!)
Anyway, could somebody tell me in what state glib/gtk C++ wrappers are? I just may try using glib/gtk framework however I'm definitely going for C++ because I've already seen how many lines can one inheritance 'definition' take in C.

BTW. I have set "scrollwheel on title bar" to change opacity. That's way faster than having to navigate through a menu.
Copyleft is lost when you are dual licensing on terms by the Qt CLA. QT can be closed up by the will of Digia. And KDEs counter measure is to pull the trigger on another anti-copyleft mechanism known as the Qt free foundation. KDE has the right to release Qt under a permissive license(non-copyleft). So yeah right now it is a stand by two entities capable of fucking freedom. While the stand off continues all the Qt shit is sold as commercial closed source shit.
And the irony to KDEs anti copyleft clause is that by pulling the trigger their now Qt-upstreamed framework goes non-copyleft as well. Thats scorched earth tactics harming open source.

FACT: Qt is not protected by copyleft.
Consider that instead of pulling shit like what Linus uses. That changes quite often BTW.
