       zathura - a document viewer


       zathura  [-e  XID]  [-c  PATH]  [-d PATH] [-p PATH] [-w PASSWORD] [-P NUMBER] [--fork] [-l
       LEVEL] [-s] [-x CMD] [--synctex-forward INPUT] [--synctex-pid PID] [-find STRING] <files>


       zathura displays the given files. If a single hyphen-minus (-) is given as file name,  the
       content  will  be  read  from  the standard input. If no files are given, an empty zathura
       instance launches.

              The documents password. If multiple documents are opened at once, the password will
              be  used  for the first one and zathura will ask for the passwords of the remaining
              files if needed.

              Opens the document at the given page number. Pages are numbered  starting  with  1,
              and  negative  numbers indicate page numbers starting from the end of the document,
              -1 being the last page.

              Opens the document and searches for the given string.

              Set log level (debug, info, warning, error)

              Set the synctex editor command. Overrides the synctex-editor-command setting.

              Jump to the given position. The switch expects the same  format  as  specified  for
              synctex's  view  -i.  If  no  instance is running for the specified document, a new
              instance will be launched (only if --synctex-pid is not specified).

              Instead of looking for an instance having the correct file  opened,  try  only  the
              instance  with  the given PID. Note that if the given PID does not have the correct
              file open or does not exist, no new instance will be spanned.

       The  default  appearance  and  behaviour  of  zathura  can be overwritten by modifying the
       zathurarc file (default path: ~/.config/zathura/zathurarc).  For  a  detailed  description
       please consult zathurarc(5).


       Both  synctex  forward  and  backwards synchronization are supported by zathura, To enable
       synctex forward synchronization, please look at the --synctex-forward and --synctex-editor
       options.  zathura  will  also  emit  a  signal via the D-Bus interface. To support synctex
       backwards synchronization, zathura provides a D-Bus interface that can be  called  by  the
       editor.  For  convince  zathura  also  knows  how  to parse the output of the synctex view
       command. It is enough to pass the arguments to synctex view's -i  option  to  zathura  via
       --synctex-forward and zathura will pass the information to the correct instance.

       For gvim forward and backwards synchronization support can be set up as follows: First add
       the following to the vim configuration:

          function! Synctex()
            execute "silent !zathura --synctex-forward " . line('.') . ":" . col('.') . ":" . bufname('%') . " " . g:syncpdf
          map <C-enter> :call Synctex()<cr>

       Then launch zathura with

          zathura -x "gvim --servername vim -c \"let g:syncpdf='$1'\" --remote +%{line} %{input}" $file

       Some editors support zathura as viewer out of the box:

              Path  to  the directory containing plugins. This directory is only considered if no
              other directory was specified using --plugins-dir.


       If GDK_NATIVE_WINDOWS is enabled you will experience problems  with  large  documents.  In
       this   case   zathura  might  crash  or  pages  cannot  be  rendered  properly.  Disabling
       GDK_NATIVE_WINDOWS fixes this issue. The same issue may appear,  if  overlay-scrollbar  is
       enabled in GTK_MODULES.
