I downloaded the new poppler 0.15 tar ball and i built it from source successfully but when trying

dpkg -l | grep poppler

it outputs

ii  libpoppler-dev                                0.14.3-0ubuntu1.1                                  PDF rendering library -- development files
ii  libpoppler-glib-dev                           0.14.3-0ubuntu1.1                                  PDF rendering library -- development files (GLib interface)
ii  libpoppler-glib4                              0.12.4-1ubuntu1                                    PDF rendering library (GLib-based shared library)
ii  libpoppler-glib5                              0.14.3-0ubuntu1.1                                  PDF rendering library (GLib-based shared library)
ii  libpoppler5                                   0.12.4-1ubuntu1                                    PDF rendering library
rc  libpoppler6                                   0.14.2.is.0.14.1-0ubuntu1                          PDF rendering library
ii  libpoppler7                                   0.14.3-0ubuntu1.1                                  PDF rendering library
ii  poppler-utils                                 0.14.3-0ubuntu1.1                                  PDF utilitites (based on libpoppler)

So AFAIK this means that the new version is not installed !!

What does which poppler say ? –  Sathya Dec 27 '10 at 18:41
    
What commands did you use to build from source? –  John T Dec 27 '10 at 19:16
    
./configure && make && make install ... i figured out the problem .. dpkg will only show the binary *.debpackages installed if you just ./configure && make && make install it will not show up in dpkg. so i put this prefix ./configure --prefix=/usr while building. –  Wazery Dec 27 '10 at 19:17

I figured out the problem. dpkg will only show the binary *.debpackages as installed. If you just ./configure && make && make install it will not show up in dpkg. so I put this prefix ./configure --prefix=/usr while building.
