    Chromium has no pdf reader. You may be able to use mozplugger. It is in the repo.

    Try installing PDF/PowerPoint Document viewer -extension from Chrome Web Store. Simply type PDF to search and select the first extension.

    Also see https://chrome.google.com/webstore/d...adadm?hl=en-US which is supposed to install pdf.js, the PDF file reader used by recent versions of Firefox.

    It works fine using the libpdf.so from Google Chrome. And it also works fine with mozplugger which embeds okular (Kubuntu: xpdf crashes, evince won't start).

    Hello, I just stopped by to say thanks for the chromium addon.
    I hate it when Chromium automatically saves a pdf onto my downloads folder.
