I am trying to put in some text tooltips in some tikz graphic.

I have found an example using pdfcomment, but after I have used pdflatex and opened it with Evince, I don't see any tooltips.

What am I doing wrong?


As far as I know, the only linux pdf viewer that can display tooltips is the linux version of Adobe reader.

  • I have now installed Adobe Reader in my gentoo linux distribution and I can confirm that it is working. The name of the package is 'acroread'. – Isomorph Dec 30 '11 at 22:06
