Evince is a document viewer capable of displaying multiple and single page document formats like PDF and Postscript. For more general information about Evince please visit our website at

-p, --page-label=PAGE
Open the document on the page with the specified page label (or page number).
-i, --page-index=NUMBER

-n, --named-dest=DEST
Open the document on the specified named destination.
-f, --fullscreen
Run evince in fullscreen mode.
-s, --presentation
Run evince in presentation mode.
-l, --find=string
You can pass a word or phrase here. If it exists, evince will display the document and the first match.
Specifies the file to open when Evince starts. If this is not specified, Evince will open a blank window. Multiple files can be loaded if they are separated by spaces. Evince also supports handling of remote files. For example, you can pass the location on the web or load a file from a FTP server, like "".

These options are primarily intended for use with the GTK+ print preview function. For more information about these options see
-w, --preview
Run evince as a previewer.
If evince is run in preview mode, this will unlink the temporary file created by GTK+.
--print-settings %s %f
This sends the full path of the PDF file, f, and the settings of the print dialog, s, to evince.
