Description Rex Dieter 2007-06-22 00:56:21 UTC
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
Requires: xdg-utils
(the package that include xdg-open).

Comment 1 Deji Akingunola 2007-06-22 02:46:50 UTC
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. 

Comment 2 Rex Dieter 2007-06-22 02:55:55 UTC
dunno, WORKSFORME, setting by hand:
dvi viewer: xdg-open %.dvi
ps viewer: xdg-open %.ps
pdf viewer: xdg-open *.pdf

Comment 3 Deji Akingunola 2007-06-22 03:02:11 UTC
It failed for me in rawhide, if that matters. I'll reboot into F7 and check there.

Comment 4 Rex Dieter 2007-08-18 22:38:03 UTC
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?). :)
