Ubuntu: Is there a pdf-reader which can find letter ä in a document?


I found that Okular won't find text that has letter ä. At least I tested with the following document:

\documentclass[10pt]{book}    \usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}  \usepackage[T1]{fontenc}  \usepackage[finnish]{babel}  \usepackage{blindtext}  \usepackage{siunitx}  \sisetup{output-decimal-marker = {,}}    \usepackage[a5paper]{geometry}  %\usepackage[a5paper, top=2in, bottom=1.5in, left=1in, right=1in]{geometry}  \usepackage{scrextend}  \changefontsizes{10.0pt}  % Change base font size    \usepackage{lettrine}  \usepackage{fancyhdr}    \usepackage{wasysym}  \pagestyle{fancy}  \fancyhf{} % clear all fields  \fancyhead[RO,LE]{\thepage}  \linespread{1.3}    \begin{document}  ÄÖäö  \end{document}  

compiled with pdflatex demo.tex. Is there a PDF-reader for Ubuntu that can find such letters correctly, or is there some bash script that allows me to find such strings from PDF's and scrolls Okular to the location of the string in a PDF file?


As probably you are using KDE, I would suggest qpdfview which is build on Qt libs. (Evince require more GTK libs)

  1. qpdfview

    sudo apt-get install qpdfview

  2. Evince

    sudo apt-get install evince

  3. Acroread

    If you can't get it in software center, Check https://get.adobe.com/uk/reader/otherversions/ . Download .deb package.

Okular I didn't check Okular 1st, after I tried it, it does work! So what's wrong?
