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
you can change the default pdf handler by right clicking on a pdf file and going
to the properties menu.
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.
