Set zoom factor and window size from command line
Submitted by Richard
evince does not allow me to specify zoom factor and window size upon startup on command line
evince does offer to "save current settings as default", but it does ignore window size and zoom factor, so it always starts up with some skewed zoom and window size.
evince mentions in --help-all it does understand
--gdk-no-debug=FLAGS GDK debugging flags to unset
but it actually doesn't:
$ evince --gdk-no-debug=FLAGS some.pdf Cannot parse arguments: Error parsing option --gdk-no-debug evince - as all gtk applications - is noisy about some GTK/GNOME boilerplate: (evince:3435): Gtk-WARNING **: Failed to get the GNOME session proxy: The name org.gnome.SessionManager is not owned
and cannot be made to shut up by
so I start it with
2> /dev/null for now on the rare occasions where I can endure it's user-unfriendliness.
