Re: No more poppler_page_render_to_pixbuf() in Ubuntu 12.04

Hi Tadej;

Yes, I finally came up with the following,

page = poppler_document_get_page(doc, page_num);
poppler_page_get_size(page, &width, &height);	
cairo_surface_t *s;
cairo_t *cr;
s = cairo_image_surface_create(CAIRO_FORMAT_ARGB32, width, height);
cr = cairo_create(s);
poppler_page_render(page, cr);
pixbuf = gdk_pixbuf_get_from_surface(s, 0, 0, width, height);
image = gtk_image_new_from_pixbuf(pixbuf);

with a build in GTK+-3.

I just don't understand why there was a depreciation of the older code.
Who makes these decisions?
