Bug#105492: [PATCH] : bit o discussion

I tried all the pdf viewers listed earlier in the bug report.  Someone needs to
write a clickable index for one of them.  Unless it was hiding I didn't see one,
that is annoying for documents of any size.  

 - I don't see any reason to suggest a particular viewer. from my limited
   testing all the Free ones are equal, only acroread has a clickable index.

 - Any better way to get a list of pdf-viewer's than what I have suggested here?
