View Full Version : [ubuntu] Yet another 9.10 problem: PDFs in Firefox

I just made my Karmic Koala upgrade, and it seems to have affected Firefox's method of displaying PDF files. They're being rendered with -- I'll be blunt -- an ugly, seemingly Java-based monstrosity with an awkward interface apparently called Ghostview. How can I get them to display the way they did before? (I think they displayed with Evince, but I can't be sure. It's still the default for displaying saved PDFs.)

Another thing: Chromium doesn't display PDFs at all. Can't remember whether I'd used it for that beforehand or not.

Have you tried downloading acroread and saving the pdf's and opening them with it?
