    can't open pdf files


    i have a couple of pdf files i would like to open, but which program(mandriva 2007). also, one other thing i don't understand i downloaded this rss-glx_0.7.6, which is a collection of screen savers, i wanted to see if i could compile and install something which i did, and when i go to screen savers they are there but none of them work, i have nvdia driver working fine, are they not compatable with mandrvia or am i missing something else?

    You can use kpdf, evince or adobe reader to read pdf files on Linux. Sorry, I can't help with the screensaver stuff.

    kghostview will also allow you to read PDF files. I also have no idea what the problem is with your screen savers. Best of luck.

    if you don't have any programs configured to open the pdf files in, just click on some pdf file, choose the option "open with" then choose the program you want to use to view pdf files and check the button "alway use this program to open these files"

    i'm nor in linux now, so the dialogues can be a litle bit different
