Getting Evince for Development
Getting Evince From git
To get the very latest version of Evince you'll need to pull the master repository with git. Here's how you'll do it.
git clone git://git.gnome.org/evince
You need to install and understand git to do that. See Git for details.
Getting Evince From a Package
Download the latest source package from the Evince package directory http://ftp.gnome.org/pub/GNOME/sources/evince/.
JHBuild offers dependency handled building which can make testing a lot easier. Follow the instructions from the jhbuild site to get up and running, then run this to get the latest Evince.
jhbuild build evince jhbuild run evince
In order to build Evince you'll need a copy of the Poppler backend, see the Poppler site for the latest instructions.
