#49 Option to change background color

Mike Sharov

Currently djview renders all documents in black text on white background. White backgrounds create severe eyestrain for people with sensitive eyes like me, making the viewer basically unusable. Could you please add an option to darken all backgrounds? Even a single option to reduce the brightness in half would be sufficient.

    Partially done using changes in CVS for both djvulibre-3.5 and djview.

    After recompiling and installing both of these,
    - run djview once.
    - file ~/.config/DjVuLibre/DjView.conf should contain a line "white=#ffffff".
    - replace this line by "white=#dfdfdf"
    - then restart djview and enjoy...

    Under windows, this config lives somewhere in the registry...

    No GUI in the preference dialog yet.
    Not sure we should add one.

    - L.

    No GUI for that yet. I am not sure we should add one soon.
