Re: [Denemo-devel] PDF window

I have now got the pdf widget working inside Denemo. The old print view
window is now showing a pdf of the score, and point and click now works
entirely internally inside Denemo (the previous version only worked with
xpdf and used external files and Unix signals to do the business).
For some reason, although the Print Dialog pops up, and lists my printer
correctly, I get no printing. This is not critical, because the previous
route to printing (ie the PrintPreview command) is still working as
before, launching an external pdf viewer.
Before I can check in though, I need the new dependency, which is
libevince2 (for building Denemo you need libevince-dev).
Can you create this dependency in the make system, so that the compile
and link steps have 
(or whatever pkgconfig says are the include and lib flags)
 and I can then check in the code I have?
I believe if the version is greater than 2.32 there is a possibility
that some conditional code may be needed as the ev_init() call is no
longer needed (but perhaps they have made it a dummy).
