    Agreed--this really should come as a default option, already preinstalled. If someone dislikes it, they're free to remove it, but to the average user having this in place makes things 'just work' versus not having it installed and wondering why things work differently with Firefox on their other machines...

    Re: HOWTO: Embed PDFs with Evince in Mozilla/Firefox

    I first tried to just install mozplugger. Now Evince pops up without any questions when I click on a PDF-file in Firefox. That's nice enough, but its not embedded into Firefox like i want. I also tried to edit the mozplugger-config-file, but it still opens Evince in a new window.

    Any clues? Running Ubuntu 9.10.

    Same issue here, tried both unedited and edited mozpluggerrc. Clean installed Karmic a couple days ago.

    Re: HOWTO: Embed PDFs with Evince in Mozilla/Firefox

    Thanks - works fine for me on Karmic 64-bit, clean install of the Beta release.

    In case it can help someone, this is the "pdf" part of my /etc/mozpluggerrc file:
    Code:
    application/pdf:pdf:PDF file
    application/x-pdf:pdf:PDF file
    text/pdf:pdf:PDF file
    text/x-pdf:pdf:PDF file
    	repeat noisy swallow(evince) fill: evince "$file"
    	ACROREAD()
    	repeat noisy swallow(kpdf) fill: kpdf "$file"
    	repeat noisy swallow(Xpdf) fill: xpdf -g +9000+9000 "$file"
    	repeat noisy swallow(okular) fill: okular "$file"
    	GV()
    	repeat noisy fill exits: evince "$file"

    That worked like a charm, thanks!

    I had to close both firefox and evince to make it work the first time.
    It's safest to close all instances of the two programs.

    Yep, that's it, at least for me. When I make changes in mozpluggerrc I have to close firefox and the plugin program for the changes to take effect. Thanks!

    Good point... why isn't it the default? Or, at the very least, why isn't there an evince plugin available from the Mozilla site?
