Are there any pdf readers for Linux that support colors out of the box ? I need a PDF reader which can switch themes like VIM's :colorscheme functionality . Adobes Pdf Reader has Color option in Accessibility Screen , but you can have only just 1 color selected . I need to toggle depending on the lighting and what suits my eyes . Android has Moon Reader whose Themes are really good . Does Linux have anything that you can recommend ?

PS : I would think this is relevant to a Linux User who needs to read PDF's more than any specific product . We do have a plethora of reader in Android that has lots of viewing themes but I see none in Linux and I think its actually a necessity much like having Desktop Themes .

Looks great! Why don't you post it as an answer? – user151227 Oct 6 '13 at 12:02

I use qpdf. It allows the user to set background (page) color. While it isn't toggling, you can easily change the appearance of pages.

Interesting but how do I change the font color , Background Color and Paper Color are for the Paper and the BG not the font - Any idea ? – Nishant Oct 6 '13 at 11:09
Hi, did you also try the "Invert colors" option? – user151227 Oct 6 '13 at 11:52
Since its off-topic question I am adding a comment about Zathura . It looks good and has a ~/.config/zathura/zathurarc where you can set a lot of things like for example… and it is vim like ! – Nishant Oct 6 '13 at 13:13
