Description Michal Jaegermann 2001-06-25 19:45:21 EDT
Various files "in the wild" have blanks in their names.  Therefore all
occurences of $file in /etc/pluggerrc should be quoted like this: "$file".
This really makes a difference.

Moreover 'pluggerrc' package is missing man page.  At least in the
current 3.3 there is one and a URL in README (the only really supplied
documenation) referes one to it.

Not quite.  Most of $file occurences is indeed now quoted but these three

        many:xanim +Av100 -Zr +W$window +q +Ze +f $file
        many: timidity -s 65000 -a -idqqqqqqq $file
        many: mpg123 -q -b 128 $file

are still there.  Use a global replace. :-)
Comment 3 Michal Jaegermann 2001-06-26 23:20:43 EDT
BTW - could you, please, add to /etc/pluggerrc the following lines (they do
not even have to be commented as netscape plugin will default to acroread):

application/pdf: pdf: Portable Document Format
        exits : xpdf "$file"

Other platforms may not even have acroread available and this works (tested).
