comment PDF viewer with reflow capabilities for linux?
on a 1600x900 laptop. Resolution is not the problem, badly formatted PDFs with hard-to read wide columns is.

comment PDF viewer with reflow capabilities for linux?
Those poppler comments make sense. I don't really care about reflowing in the acrobat reader sense. All I care about is making the text column narrower, so that it's easier to read, and I'd like to be able to do that on the fly, if possible.

comment How to get comfortable in linux as an ex-windows user?
Hrm, thanks for the answer @sr_, but I am thinking more along the lines of someone who never needed to do any command line stuff before. There's very little need for the command line for general use these days, and while I agree it is a hugely important tool and aspect of linux, I'd prefer to leave it out as much as possible at this early stage, to help reduce the initial shock. I clarified the question a little.

comment How to get comfortable in linux as an ex-windows user?
@IgnacioVazquez-Abrams: perhaps. But I think that there can be a reasonable compromise somewhere - ie. not going into kernel design and things like that, but at least covering the practical differences that an average non-geek user might encounter..

comment Is there a readme reader like man?
They're often not gzipped, also, presumably they can sometimes be in /usr/local/share/doc/, so it'd be good to automatically find the appropriate file, without typing it manually.

comment Restart USB mouse driver?
@JimParis: I'd agree, but it also happens sometimes without suspending (less common though). I've tried looking at dmesg, but I don't really know what to look for..
