#282 closed enhancement (duplicate)

Display a warning when the installed poppler lib is not at the required level to support the current PDF plugin

Reported by: Lewis Rosenthal Owned by:
Priority: minor Milestone: 1.4.0
Component: Plugin: PDF Version: 1.3.5
Keywords: Cc:

Description (last modified by Lewis Rosenthal)

Instead of merely not rendering PDFs, apply check at startup for requisite level of poppler dll. If not found, present a warning panel, e.g.:

Unable to load PDF Plugin.
Possible reason: Incompatible poppler library.

Please install poppler-0.42.0 to enable PDF rendering.

This would work for popplers which are too new as well as those which are too old.

Duping this over to #322, as that ticket is more generic, now that we have all included plugins depending upon external libraries.

Move closed tickets to completed milestone. Many of these were completed before 1.4.0
