Description of problem:
evolution's quick reference is a PDF file stored here:

When selecting Help->Quick Reference, code in
evolution/shell/e-shell-window-commands.c: command_quick_reference

tries to use the default handler for "application/pdf" and runs it.

Fails badly on my current test machine, launching 3 kpdf instances,
fails in a different way on FC3test2

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start Evolution
2. Select Help->Quick Reference


Actual Results:  On FC3test2, gpdf is launched, but doesn't display

Expected Results:  A PDF viewer is launched, displaying the quick

The quick reference PDF is viewable in xpdf, and in gpdf if loaded

BTW, it contains a reference to "Ximian Evolution"
Comment 2 Marco Pesenti Gritti 2004-10-12 09:50:15 EDT
The pdf viewer was changed by mistake to gdpf. In rawhide the default
is now back to ggv, which opens quickref.pdf correctly.

I posted a bug upstream for gpdf too:

Comment 3 Marco Pesenti Gritti 2004-10-12 16:53:52 EDT
Additionally the gpdf issue should be fixed by gpdf-2.8.0-2
