libpdf.so not working in Chromium
Hello all, just wondering if someone could help me out here. I have just installed Chromium browser version 20.0.1132.47. As it does not have a pdf viewer, I decided to do what I have done before and copy the libpdf.so file from /opt/google/chrome to /usr/lib/chromium-browser. This has worked for me in the past, but now all I am getting is the "Aw Snap" message that the plugin is not working. I have tried it with the libpdf.so files from google-chrome-stable (23.0.1271.64), google-chrome-beta (24.0.1312.14) and google-chrome-unstable (25.0.1323.1) but to no avail. Also, the reason why I'd like to use Chromium instead of Chrome is because Channel 4 On-Demand is working in Chromium and not in Chrome; so incidentally, if anyone knows how to solve that as well, then please let me know.

All sorted... I found the solution here: http://www.webdweb.in/2012/10/pdf-viewer-in-chromium/
If anyone still has any tips on the Channel 4 thing though... that'd be great.
