So, can anyone please tell what are the magic words you type on the terminal to be able to read pdf files. I don't know if I need to install anything or not. I'm using slackware - desktop environment KDE!
I will be forever grateful to anyone you tries to help me. . . .
I have no direct experience with that distro, but would imagine it comes with some kind of pdf reader. Maybe it's gpdf? In a terminal you can ...
and if it produces a man page, then it's installed on your system.
typing: gpdf <somepdffile.pdf> should launch gpdf with the pdf file loaded.
