Perhaps it wont work with XFCE?
It's sort of "mispackaged". You need to install the zathura-pdf-poppler
package, too. The zathura package description mentions that "plugins" are
used, but is describes Zathura as PDF viewer although by default it cannot
displays PDF, because the pdf-poppler plugin is not installed.
Zathura is a highly configurable and functional PDF viewer based on the Poppler
rendering library and the GTK+ toolkit. The idea behind zathura is an
application that provides a minimalist and space saving interface as well as
an easy usage that mainly focuses on keyboard interaction.
Zathura uses plugins to open different file formats, for instance:
* zathura-pdf-poppler to open PDF files,
* zathura-ps to open PostScript files,
* zathura-djvu to open DjVu files.
All of these are available in Fedora.
