Thread: GIMP has made it's GIMP. Help!

    Default GIMP has made it's GIMP. Help!

    Hi all I hope you can help me out here. I downloaded GIMP to do some photo editing, which was successful.

    However whenever I download/open a pdf from a website, it now opens in GIMP instead of Ocular. This is very annoying as I can't see the pages of whatever I'm trying to open properly. How can I tell Firefox or whatever to always use Ocular to open pdfs?

    Thanks!

    What you need to do is reset the file association for pdf files. To do this from the kickoff select Configure Desktop (Personal Settings) and select the Advanced tab.

    From here open File Associations and expand the application entry. Highlight pdf in the list and a window on the right will list all programs that are able to deal with this type of file. Select Okular and move it to the top of the list with the move up arrow and Apply.

    That should do the trick.

    Cheers Paul that's exactly what I wanted to know... however it hasn't worked! Firefox still opens .pdf files in Gimp.

    OK, try the Firefox preferences.

    Open Firefox and select Edit > Preferences. Choose Applications and from the dropdown select PDF Document. Here you can select which application opens a PDF file. I have mine set as 'Always ask'. If okular isn't listed you can find it in 'Use other ...' and navigate to /usr/bin where okular should be listed.

    Edit: Looks like caf4926 beat me to it!

    Yes. Tipping down here all night and first thin. But cleared up about 10am. Nice and sunny and warm now. Take a look at Windermere:

    Probably confusing for some and a bit of a PITA, but it was just 3 clicks for me back up the tree.
