Viewing PDF and PS files with Mozilla Firebird ala Mozilla

Post by Jaso » Sun, 31 Aug 2003 01:05:43


I liked how Mozilla would view .pdf and .ps files within the browser. The
interface was excellent and the printing worked perfectly. However,
Mozilla Firebird doesn't do this; does anyone know what programs I need to
call to get this functionality within Firebird?

Thanks,
Jason

Yeah, I have both of those, but Mozilla used some nice in-browser program
that had a great user interface and always printed correctly. I'm
wondering if I can get the same functionality out of Firebird, since Xpdf
doesn't work with Postscript files and ghostview has some weird problems
on my machine.

That sounds like acroread. At least on my system when I click on
a PDF link it opens in the browser using acroread.

Do you have the "nppdf.so" in the plugins directory for Firebird?
