I have a strange problem. This is Fedora 8 system with KDE-3.5. For some
reason, KDE stops recognizing PDF. The PDF icon does not show up for PDF
file on Konqueror, trying to open PDF file will ask the program I want to
open it with. Entering kpdf, kpdf will open and just say "One page document
loaded", but shows nothing on the screen although I know for sure the
document is multiple pages.
I tried launching KPdf, and try open PDF file. On the Filter, it just says
"Unknown, Postscript", it seems that even KPDF does not recognize PDF. Same
result as above when I try to actually open a known good PDF file (e.g.
Evince will open it).
I tried uninstall and install kdegraphics and still does not fix the
problem. I tried creating new clean user, removed ~/.kde, all to no avail.
The last thing I did before this happen was that I remove AdobeReader_enu
and nsplugginwrapper because I hate that PDF always try to open Acroread
inside my Firefox. I wanted to just use KPDF as external app, and then this
problem happened. I cannot even use KPDF stand alone.
Another thing, when this happen, right clicking on PDF file with Konqueror,
then on Property, it does't recognize it as PDF, only something about
"octet/stream" for the MIME.
I tried "yum groupupdate KDE" and still did not help.
Out of desperation, I re-installed AdobeReader_enu via RPM. And suddenly KPDF
works again, and KDE recognize PDF again. But still, What In The World
