Hi

I'm looking for a tool to take an actual .pdf file and display it in a
window (I'm using wxwidgets at the moment)

I have found several project but none seem to do what I need.

http://sourceforge.net/projects/pdfplayground seems like a nice
toolkit to edit pdf files with python code, but nothing about
rendering.

I have find out http://poppler.freedesktop.org/ but there seems to be
no python bindings for it.

there is also an example at http://www.daniweb.com/code/snippet618.html
using wx.lib.pdfwin but that is windows only, I need at least Linux
support better if it's platform independant as python *should* be

and the reportlabs BSD packages can't do this.
http://www.reportlab.org/devfaq.html#2.1.5

anyone knows of a toolkit to do this? bonus points if's it is already
integrated into wxpython
