I have the following problem: Whenever I click a PDF link in firefox, mozplugger tries to invoke evince which then says "Unhandles MIME type: application/octet-stream".
This has happended with every pdf I've been trying to open for quite some time.
Opening local pdfs with evince works perfectly, though.
I did not change mozpluggerrc and followed the rules for installing mozplugger (deleted ~/.mozilla/pluginreg.dat).
Thanks in advance!
bump. I have been having this same problem. It's very annoying. Someone must have a solution?
I get fed up and fixed it. If anyone else has this problem, copy this into a file somewhere in your path (I used ~/bin). This should be pretty self explanitory
#!/bin/sh name=$1 final=/tmp/`basename $name`.pdf cp $name $final shift evince $final $* rm $final
then, replace the line
repeat noisy swallow(evince) fill: evince "$file"
repeat noisy swallow(evince) fill: evince_mime_fixer.sh "$file"
replace evince_mime_fixer.sh with whatever you called your script.
