    Adobe Acrobat and RH 9


    Hello,
    I have downloaded and installed Adobe acrobat reader for Linux. I did so even though RH comes with the XPDF reader. I like adobe. I am still partial to the programs and utilities that I used in WINDOWS. Now that I have the Adobe reader installed I want it to be the DEFAULT application when PDF files are read. I think it might be in my bash.src file or somewhere but I am not sure.

    Thanks in Advance.

    So have you already googled "linux file associations" ? If so what did you find?

    I know when I installed Adobe Acrobat I couldn't get it to be the default application for PDF documents. The defaults seemed to stay with 2 programs that come with RH9 (XPDF and something else).

    I even tried to change the association but to no avail....

    I see this post hasn't been answered or replied to for that fact - so I thought I'd jump on the band-wagon.....

    But then you'd be directing people away from this site to other sites.

    Much better to answer and bask in that warm glow of oneness and smugness.

    Thanks,

    I did find one
    http://www.pcquest.com/content/linux.../199060101.asp

    Though I'm curious as to what goes on with Linux RH9. Why does it do this?

    I have RH9 as a secondary boot on my work pc and solely on my home pc. They use the same builds, very similar hardware, yet sometimes very different results. (Basically, I use my work pc as a pre-emptive trial for what I'm going to do at home, to make sure I have all files etc)
