    I tried reading an ePub in qpdfview running Ubuntu 14.04 LTS and discovered it won't run anymore. I haven't used qpdfview for quite a while and didn't know about this until very recently. Has anyone else had this problem? I'm guessing qpdfview 0.4.7-1 (from the Ubuntu repo) isn't compatible with Trusty now.
