This is what the qt4 demo application (provided with poppler sources) does. 
You might like to refer to that.

If that application works, and your code doesn't, then you've done something 
wrong. You haven't provided any details, so I guess you're up to debugging 
this yourself.

If that demo application doesn't work for you, then probably there is 
something wrong in either your Qt4 or poppler builds.
