A good Amiga off reader

Does anyone know of a good pdf viewer for the Amiga? I am currently using apdf, but it seems to have problems with many of the pdf files. I am currently running amigaos 3.9.
Thanks

Apdf sucks as it supports a very old subset of the PDF format, which means you wont be able to see most of your pdf files.

You should install GhostScript 8.70 and use as a front end either gsgui or easygs.
It is a pain to install and get GhostScript running, but it is worth the trouble.

Is it a problem with installing ghost script 8.7 when ghostscript 4 is installed with turboprint. Do I need to remove The version that came with turboprint And replace it with 8.7? Doi keep both versions installed? Thanks

Somewhere on the GhostScript 8.70 website there is a tip on getting it to work properly with Turboprint, I cant emember right now how it was, but it worked.
