Description Massimo Burcheri 2017-04-26 10:55:23 UTC
When building app-text/mupdf with uSE="opengl", please make mupdf using the mupdf-gl port by default. It is advised to use that port over mupdf-x11 as the GL-based port beside using OpenGL has lot of advanced shortcuts like smart browsing and full history stack known from vim.

Here with
Installed versions:  1.10a-r2(09:07:30 06.04.2017)(X curl opengl openssl -javascript -libressl -static -static-libs -vanilla)
the symlink is using the x11 port by default:
/usr/bin/mupdf -> mupdf-x11*

The GL port should work on modern Linux using mesa and most probably gallium rendering and thus should be the default.

Reproducible: Always

Just fyi `mupdf` fails to launch in the scenario where `media-libs/glfw USE=wayland` but the Gnome session is launched via X11 fallback.

`mupdf` launch the fails with `glfw` failing to connect to a Wayland display.

I think I found a typo in mupdf-1.11-openssl-curl-x11.patch. On line 27, it says:
    +WANT_X!! ?= yes
I think that should be:
    +WANT_X11 ?= yes
as the next line says:
    +ifeq "$(WANT_X11)" "yes"
