USING DJVIEW4 AS A PLUGIN
Under Unix/X11, djview4 can be used as a browser plugin
by means of the small shared library named nsdejavu.so.
The djview3 distributed with djvulibre uses the same approach.
In fact both djview3 and djview4 communicate
with nsdejavu.so with the same protocol.
You can either install the file nsdejavu.so that comes
with djview3 or the one that comes with djview4.
The file nsdejavu.so uses the viewer specified
with the environment variable NPX_DJVIEW or searches
an executable viewer named djview, djview4 or djview3.
