Is there any Free PDF viewer in Debian that works outside of GNOME/KDE that can both search for text across line breaks and allows copying of text from the PDF document to the clip-board?

Install pdfgrep and xclip. You can then do something like:

  pdfgrep 'foo.*bar' baz.pdf | xclip

Works for me.
