Description sean 2006-05-28 21:27:27 UTC
Description of problem:
Using fc5 rawhide on amd64, firefox won't open pdf's except with kpdf

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

Additional info:

With default mozpluggerrc, ACROREAD is used to open pdf's on firefox. When you
try this you just get a blank browser page no acroread, no pages- probably
because this is firefox.x86_64 and acroread is i386.

edit mozpluggerc to make evince the default, and open a pdf. Here evince does
start and appear within the browser, but no pages appear.

if kpdf is the default it works.

xpdf and GV() both load but give _very_ messed pages - not just unreadable.

And if I comment out all the pdf portion of mozpluggerrc:
# application/pdf:pdf:PDF file
# application/x-pdf:pdf:PDF file
# text/pdf:pdf:PDF file
# text/x-pdf:pdf:PDF file
#	repeat noisy swallow(kpdf) fill: kpdf "$file"
#	repeat noisy swallow(evince) fill: evince "$file"
#	repeat noisy swallow(Xpdf) fill: xpdf -g +9000+9000 "$file"
#	GV()

I get a mozplugger error message: "No appropriate application found"

I realize this is a lot like bug 182234 which was closed as NOTABUG, but at
least as shipped mozplugger doesn't work with pdf's. What's more there seems no
way to open a pdf file externally.

Comment 1 Bug Zapper 2008-04-03 17:17:54 UTC
Based on the date this bug was created, it appears to have been reported
against rawhide during the development of a Fedora release that is no
longer maintained. In order to refocus our efforts as a project we are
flagging all of the open bugs for releases which are no longer
maintained. If this bug remains in NEEDINFO thirty (30) days from now,
we will automatically close it.

If you can reproduce this bug in a maintained Fedora version (7, 8, or
rawhide), please change this bug to the respective version and change
the status to ASSIGNED. (If you're unable to change the bug's version
or status, add a comment to the bug and someone will change it for you.)

Thanks for your help, and we apologize again that we haven't handled
these issues to this point.
