Smile Poppler update installer: enhance character display - more darker & sharper

This is the installer used to enhance Iliad PDF character display, can display small font more darker and sharper.

Just enter the proper directory of this tool in the contentlister to choose which functions you like:
1. Restore the iRex offical iPDF's poppler -Use to restore the original iRex offical poppler
2. Install iPDF's new darker poppler - Used to display pdf more darker and sharper
3. Install iPDF's new darkest poppler - Use to display pdf darkest and sharpest
4. Run to identify the poppler version - Used to check poppler's version installed in iliad

The installer scripts will automatically backup your original iLiad libpoppler.so to the directory '<installer directory>/iRex',
so if there are any problem with the updated libpoppler.so, you can use function 1 'Restore' to restore the original library file.

To use this set of installers:
1. make sure you have upgraded to version 2.12 of the iliad software
2. make sure that you have requested shell access (again if you had it before with 2.11 and then upgraded to 2.12)
3. Unzip this set of installers somewhere of your SD or CF card, anywhere that you can access with the contentlister.
4. Make sure there are still some space for the original iLiad libpoppler backup, at lest reserve 5MB for the installer.
5. click on the entry for the function you like.


Here are some picture for the comparison of the different versions' poppler.

Graet job.
One guy claimed that he had built some mods to alter ipdf rendering on bbs.mobread.com. I guess you are that guy.

It's really nice to see people joining the development force.

Is it only me? I feel the font shape in darker appearance a bit uglier than the normal one.

Hi Jatqceer,

Maybe if you use the darker font on a poorly scanned pdf document, you would appreciate it better...

Just a thought...

I see. With fonts as thin as CMR, which is used as default in TeX, this poppler update indeed makes it easier to read.
