Hola Eduardo,

I tried evince on the N800 over the weekend with a few PDF and CBR
comic book archives and it works well.  Problems observed:

1) CBZ packages were not shown in the file selector (unzip is installed, I checked)

2) RAR and ZIP packages should be handled like CBR and CBZ

3) opening a file keeps the first one open.  This is a problem if you
have large archives.  It should be an option (open one/open multiples).

I really like evince, it's fast and responds well, and has not crashed
once with heavy testing.  I hope you have time to put it up on a
repository soon.

Thank you
