Why is xpdf obsolete?
The latest version is from this year and has not all the gtk stuff which
epdfview uses. I wouldn't call epdfview a lightweight one.
The conflict between poppler-util and xpdf is only annoying.
Could we please finally fix the conflicts problem, like renaming the
pdf* programs in one of the two packages?
poppler is a xpdf fork so that is the first choice (leaving the orginal
one alone), but maybe the xpdf one could be easier to find a new name
for all the pdf* programs.
