I seem to see Firefox opening up PDFs in Xpdf, rather than Evince (which I'd
prefer).

We should probably fix this for FC4test3

Comment 2 Need Real Name 2005-04-08 15:10:52 UTC
I had that too, so I uninstalled ggv and xpdf. But I get no opening anywhere,
just downloading.

Comment 3 Marco Pesenti Gritti 2005-04-09 08:53:23 UTC
Please try to open the properties of a pdf file in nautilus and look at the
contents of the "Open With" tab.

I see Evince Document Viewer. But in Firefox, it opens up in xpdf as per my
original comment #1

WFM with epiphany.

$ rpm -q evince epiphany
