I am running Netscape 4.7 under Linux. I am having problems getting Netscape
to automatically open .pdf files when browsing.
I go to preferences/navigator/applications/
choose: Portable Document Format
insert the helper application: acroread
On my system acroread will start up acroreader.
When I have done this, and am browsing a pdf file with netscape, it will start
up acroreader BUT the acroreader window is empty. It doesn't automatically
open the file I am browsing.
Can anyone tell me how to get it set up properly? I am finding more and
more that people are putting .pdf links up instead of html and it is too
painful to have to download each .pdf and then start up acroread manually.
Thanks very much for any help!
