    Default firefox+mozplugger+okular still uses acroread

    Hi!

    acrobat in linux (at least opensuse) is a pain in the ass, so I'vew been using mozplugger+okular to embed pdfs in firefox, but after an update firefox has begun to use acroread for embeded pdfs. I'm trying to figure aout why but I've not succed.

    My /etc/mozplugerrc has the following:
    Code:
    application/pdf:pdf:PDF file
    application/x-pdf:pdf:PDF file
    text/pdf:pdf:PDF file
    text/x-pdf:pdf:PDF 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 "$file"
    #        repeat noisy swallow(epdfview) fill: epdfview "$file"
            GV()
    #       repeat noisy fill exits: evince "$file"

    And in the firefox settings: aplications-PDF I have

    application/pdf -> use mozplugger
    application/x-pdf -> use mozplugger

    so, how it is possible firefox open the embeded PDF with acroread? Am I missing something?


    thank you
    regards

    Navigate to Edit>Preferences>Manage Add-ons>Plugins (Find the 'Adobe Reader' plugin and disable). Does that work OK?

    No, now okular opens all the pdf but not embeded. It' looks like mozplugger is not working but it is enabled in "Manage Add-ons"

    I've never used mozplugger, but I have seen that the problem may lie with your local config in ~/.mozilla/mozpluggerrc

    mozdev.org - mozplugger: index

    You may also need to navigate to ~/.mozilla/firefox/....pluginreg.dat and delete this file. When you restart firefox, it will get regenerated.

    Hopefully, someone who does use it will drop by and assist.

    ~/.mozilla/mozpluggerrc doen't exist but deleting ~/.mozilla/firefox/....pluginreg.dat have solved the problem. Now I'm watching embeded PDF woth okular wich is largely faster than acroread

    thanks
