    Default can't preview pdf opensuse 11 kde 4

    Hi,

    I'm just wondering why I can't preview pdf files in kde 4.1. The problem exists with both dolphin and konqueror, so I suspect it is a kde 4 problem.

    I can preview images and djvu files, but no pdfs. I was able to preview everything with 10.3 and kde 3.5

    Any help is greatly appreciated

    Thanks in advance

    I could almost bet I'd seen pdf previews in Dolphin but they really don't show up for me. I'm puzzled by that too.

    But it seams that it's supposed to work: https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=167052

    PDFs are handled by Okular which may not yet have been integrated into Dolphin/Konqueror in the way KPDF was.

    Is this a general problem?

    Any solutions?

    This was something that was bothering me for awhile also. I just figured out how to fix it. I ended up installing "kdegraphics4" from the "Factory" repo and I now have the previews for PDF's and html files in Dolphin.
