Evince alternative

Thank you guys for all these tips. Eric Bradshaw's tweak managed to make the menus readable again, but still the traditional textual menus (upper left: File/Edit/View...) are replaced by two unlabeled buttons upper right, quite different from all other applications. So I decided to turn to Atril (as a fork probably 99% equal to evince anyway). Removing Lubuntu-desktop proved harmless, at least for now...

I've already fixed the menus and they're fine now. The bug is gone. And in Trusty, Evince has less buttons. We tested before other solutions and Evince is not so resource-hungry, it respects image standards (colour profiles, icc resampling, anti-aliasing, etc) more than any other solution that, unfortunately, use "strange" UI solutions (FLTK, non-GTK, etc).
