I want to see dvi viewer integrated in such application. We have a nice gdvi
rendering widget, that is not fully usable, but already can display dvi

We had discussed this problem about a month ago with Martin Kretzschmar and
the result was a decision, that it should be common shell for bonobo
components like gpdf or ggv shell. The viewers can implement corresponding
bonobo components and thus provide a way to render documents like pdf, ps or
even djvu. Also there is possibility to improve code reuse by creating
common library to implement such components with utility things.

I've started some work on it and already has a shell, based on gpdf shell
that can display pdf and ps with controls from gpdf and ggv. Also I've
started to modify gpdf tree to separate library and include extra components
like ggv. The current source tree can be downloaded from It doesn't build cleanly now, but
you can look at work direction there.
