I know you asked for a gui text viewer solution, but nevertheless try 
the 'less' command is in the terminal.  It's a lot simpler than 
downloading something from a repository.  Just type 'less <filename>'.  
less will stop page-by-page.  You can also use your cursor keys to move 
up and down.  just type 'q' to leave.
