Bug Description

The default settings for the latex file type use xdvi and xpdf as viewers. Evince is more user friendly and better integrated and should be used instead. This can be achived by modifying the last lines of
 run_cmd=evince "%f"
 run_cmd2=evince "%f"

I agree, evince is in the standard install while xpdf/xdvi are not so having evince as the default is a very nice suggestion. I attached a branch fixing that.
