Description of problem:
we should use evince as the default PDF viewer, not xpdf.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
This isn't the responsibility of firefox I think. It must be set somewhere in
GNOME's MIME system. I don't know which package. desktop team would know.
It's not immediately obvious to me that this can be fixed in shared-mime-info -
Jonathan, do you know?

should do the fix.
It seems that Evince, per it's desktop file, doesn't handle the
application/x-gzpostscript MIME type. Is that correct, jrb? If Evince doesn't,
should we just drop that entry in defaults.lst?
Another issue is that we need to have Evince in the default install for this to
work; is that the case now?
Bah, ggv was removed from the distro on 2005-02-24 but defaults.list wasn't
updated :-/. I checked comps.xml and Evince is indeed installed per default.
