man xpdf says the following:

Previous versions of xpdf included a "viKeys" X resource. It is no longer available, but the following bindings are equivalent:

bind h any scrollLeft(16) bind l any scrollRight(16) bind k any scrollUp(16) bind j any scrollDown(16)

But I am unable to use those keys for navigation. Do they work? Any special configuration required from my side?

Usefull for me, thanks.

Rather /etc/xpdf/xpdfrc, I create ~/.xpdfrc to add these 4 lines. I'm french and I use a Dvorak bépo keyboard, so mine is :

bind c any scrollLeft(16)

bind r any scrollRight(16)

bind s any scrollUp(16)

bind t any scrollDown(16)

Well, I figured that out. Go edit /etc/xpdf/xpdfrc and add the following

bind h any scrollLeft(16)
bind l any scrollRight(16)
bind k any scrollUp(16)
bind j any scrollDown(16)

Now, I have the desired behavior.
