evince triggers PDF detection on file extension
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:44 EST
Description of problem:
Evince refuses to render (some?) PDFs when the file name does not end in ".pdf".
This is a big issue when trying to open a PDF from a mail reader or browser,
which may use a temporary filename not ending in ".pdf".
Renaming the file to <file>.pdf makes evince render the file just fine...
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. mv <file>.pdf <file>
2. evince <file>
3. watch it fail
4. mv <file> <file>.pdf
5. evince <file>.pdf
6. now it works
This seems to be fixed in fc6.
Can you attach an example ? It worked fine when I tried it here.
Then I guess it got fixed :)
If it happens again in the future I'll reopen.
