texmaker: use xdg-open instead of (hard-coded) evince
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:08 EST
texmaker-toos.patch currently hard-codes use of evince for ps/pdf viewer. I'd
suggest using xdg-open instead, so that the users' preferred ps/pdf viewer app
is used instead.
If you choose to do that, you should add
(the package that include xdg-open).
Thanks for the suggestion. I implemented this locally and tested viewing files
with it (from texmaker), but it failed to work properly. While it worked for
viewing %.dvi (it opened with xdvi), it fails for both ps and pdf where evince
(and also acroread for pdf) works. However running xdg-open from the
command-line to open the actual ps and pdf files works.
I'll leave this bug open, and investigate further while xdg-open would not work
within texmaker for ps and pdf.
dunno, WORKSFORME, setting by hand:
dvi viewer: xdg-open %.dvi
ps viewer: xdg-open %.ps
pdf viewer: xdg-open *.pdf
It failed for me in rawhide, if that matters. I'll reboot into F7 and check there.
imo, I'd rather apps respect a users' preferred dvi/ps/pdf application instead
of hard-coding something. And... if there are issues/problems related to that,
I'd rather push this change to devel/rawhide to give folks a chance to see/test,
and fix issues (that's what rawhide is for, right?). :)
