    For the current stable distribution (woody) this problem has been
    fixed in version 1.00-3.1.
    
    For the old stable distribution (potato) this problem has been
    fixed in version 0.90-8.1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been
    fixed in version 2.01-2.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your xpdf package.
    
    wget url
            will fetch the file for you
    dpkg -i file.deb
            will install the referenced file.
    
    If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
    sources.list as given below:
    
    apt-get update
            will update the internal database
    apt-get upgrade
            will install corrected packages
    
    You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
    footer to the proper configuration.
