Is it normal that Evince is really slow with pdf documents with pictures and larger than 10 Mb? Instead of loading the whole document and then being able to scroll fast I always get slow page-preview-scrolling and slow document scrolling. Even pages I have scrolled to before in one session have to be constantly reloaded. Is this normal? Is there a way to improve this?
I don't have any other performance issues in other applications (e.g. GIMP, Inkscape, QGIS). I have a laptop with a Intel Core i3-3120M CPU @ 2.50GHz × 4, but only 4 Gb of RAM. Is that not enough RAM for Ubuntu 14.04 and Evince?
Both qpdfview and mupdf are really fast (instantaneous) in document scrolling and page-preview-scrolling. I will try to reinstall Evince or find a ppa for a newer version and update the question after those steps.
Reinstalling hasn't helped even from the gnome ppa. I guess I will have to wait for one of these bugs to be dealt with:
