That would be /usr/bin or, which evince to tell you. Remember, you've got Pfind in your menu.

Or epdfview

/usr/bin/epdfview
/usr/bin/evince

Of the two I prefer evince as it scrolls through pages better (with epdfview you have to 'next page').

Hmm.. @ closer inspection this appears to be a bug with PM's file select dialog. I'll follow-up in a bit..

evince is in /usr/bin
or you can use /usr/local/bin/defaultpdfviewer

evince is the pdf viewer in Tahrpup

It is located in /usr/bin

Pale Moon Edit-> preferences->Applications->PDF file default setting is "always ask". That is why you got asked what PDF viewer to use.

With this setting, each time you try to look at a PDF with Pale Moon, you have to tell it to use /usr/bin/evince.

Simple solution.
Go to Pale Moon Edit-> preferences->Applications->PDF file
Change this setting to "use evince".
Now Pale Moon will automatically use evince to view any PDF.

Hi. I am using Pale Moon 27.4.2 64-bit on Tahrpup 6.0.6 64-bit.

When I click on a link to a pdf file in Pale Moon I want a window to come up and offer the choice of saving the file or opening it with evince. In Edit->Preferences->Applications, I have set "Pdf File" to "Always Ask".

I edited /root/Choices/MIME-types/application_pdf so that it contains:
exec evince "$1"
I deleted the original exec line.

I edited /usr/share/applications/defaults.list so that it contains:
application/pdf=evince.desktop
I deleted the original application/pdf line.

Now when I click on a link to a pdf I get the desired window, except that to open the pdf file I must Browse to evince each time I click on such a link. And after I do Browse to evince in /usr/bin and click on OK, the pdf does not open at all. Instead, it seems to download, but I cannot find it on my computer afterwards.

Help, please. Thanks.
