Viewing XPS Files in Linux

XPS files is a format from MS on Windows. Evince can view some XPS files, but fails to view some. To view XPS files generated on Windows on a Linux system, we can use mupdf. It works very well. I like it much especially in the situation that Evince fails to open the XPS file.

Install mupdf

Install mupdf by yum:

# yum install mupdf

View XPS files

To view a xps file aaa.xps:

$ mupdf aaa.xps
