Zathura 是一款新的 PDF 查看器 ，它相当轻巧，界面简约（与 Apvlv 很相似），且可以定制（如按键绑定、默认窗口大小等 ）。除了 PDF 查看器所具有的一般功能之外，Zathura 还包括搜索、表单编辑、可点击链接、导出图像等其他功能。和 Linux 下大多数 PDF 查看器一样，Zathura 也基于 Poppler 库，另外它需要依赖 GTK+ 和 Cairo。
Zathura is a project of pwmt ( programs with movie titles) - a community developing functional open source applications and libaries that mainly focus on simplistic and space saving user interfaces and key board interaction. And as you can guess, what makes Zathura stand out of other pdf reader applications is the simplicity. Zathura doesnt come with any tool bar, it offers a vim-like experience and has a focus on keyboard interaction so if you are using a netbook with a tiling window manager, Zathura will definitely worth to take a look at. The keybindings, commands and other settings of Zathura can be customized easily by editing the config file ( /etc/zathurarc or ~/.zathurarc).
