Slacko 5.5 included Firefox 19 which came with a built in PDF reader which simply worked without any need for the user to enable it.

Slacko 5.6 includes Firefox 17.0.8 which appears to lack a built in PDF reader and I have been unable to track down an add-on PDF reader.

This is important to me. I have chosen to continue with Slacko 5.5 as a consequence until I can add a PDF reader or discover the trick for making a built in one work.

Sad

Hi...

You can try a PDF add on available here...

OR

You can try using Adobe Reader or Foxit here.

These also may be available in the Puppy Package Manager as well.

EDIT: There is a .pet for Adobe Reader 9 here but I'm not sure it will work for Slacko.

Hope this helps. Smile

Regards...
