Description Chris Petersen 2004-11-19 21:14:01 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.3)
Gecko/20041020 Galeon/1.3.18

Description of problem:
For some reason, galeon (and presumably other gnome apps) can't find
the default pdf handler.  I went looking for the "file types and
programs" control that was there in core 2, but it's not there.  I
poked around in gconf-editor to no avail.  As far as I can see,
there's no way to tell gnome that I want gpdf to open pdf files. 
Either this needs to be re-added, or the
gnome-default-applications-properties needs to be expanded to support
mime extensions.

Comment 1 Ray Strode [halfline] 2005-09-09 20:02:50 UTC
Hi Chris,
you can change the default pdf handler by right clicking on a pdf file and going
to the properties menu.

Comment 2 Chris Petersen 2005-09-09 20:36:26 UTC
right-click?  what about those who don't (ever) use nautilus?  Would be nice to
have a global place to go and set stuff.

oh well, I've since switched to kde, anyway.
