Plugger / Mozilla does not open PDF files correctly
Last modified: 2005-10-31 17:00:50 EST
Description of problem:
Plugger does not seem to open PDF files correctly even though /etc/pluggerrc
contains the correct applications for the task.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Every time it is attempted.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Just try to open a PDF document online.
I get a motif-like embedded white window in the browser with the text :
Plugger: No appropriate application for type application/pdf found!
The PDF document ought to open normally.
/etc/pluggerrc is attached.

The situation is not changed even if I delete $HOME/.mozilla and do a clean
start, thereby forcing mozilla to read the new plugins from this file.
You have modified the pluggerrc. It's broken! Please use the pluggerrc from RHL 9.
For running Acrobat5, you have to make a symlink in /usr/bin.
ln -sf /usr/local/Acrobat5/bin/acroread /usr/bin/acroread
After that it should work fine.
