I have a problem with trying to install something which can read djvu.
All forums on internet solve the problem for centos or others dist.
But it did not help me on SL7.
I tried to install djvulibre, update evince, okular.....
But here is no repository with that package that I need or something...
I am not good at linux yet. So if someone can give me instruction how to install djvulibre or update evince or download repo which i miss or something else. I will really appreciate it. Thanks wacko.gif

Is this the package your are talking about?
djvulibre : DjVu viewers, encoders, and utilities

Read the links in my signature and then install the epel repo. After that you can install the package via

yum install djvulibre

Ok. I was too happy. But I did not get it.
I have installed the package, but can not understand how to launch the program or open the book? It does not shown in program list..

Seems like the viewer or what you are looking for is not in that package.
Read about the PUIAS repo in the link about 3rd party repos in my signature.
CODE

rpm --import http://springdale.math.ias.edu/data/puias/7/x86_64/os/RPM-GPG-KEY-puias

create the following file in /etc/yum.repos.d/puias-unsupported. Then add the following
CODE

[puias.math.ias.edu_data_puias_unsupported]
name=puias.math.ias.edu_data_puias_unsupported
baseurl=http://puias.math.ias.edu/data/puias/unsupported/$releasever/$basearch
enabled=1
gpgkey=file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-puias

CODE

yum  install djview4

Then you can open it via the menu --> graphics-->djview4

ALSO IMPORTANT: The Unsupported repository contains additional packages not included in the stock Red Hat installation, however, unlike the Addons directory, unsupported packages may not be updated frequently or maintained.

See their website

The other package(djvulibre) does have some djvu tools but they are commandline tools.
