Want to find and install KPDF?


I have Mandrake 10.1. When I click on a PDF file, Konqueror opens. Where would I find an RPM ready copy of KPDF? Also, what kind of viewer would I need to open a CHM file? Thanks.

KPDF comes as a part of KDE 3.4. I don't think you can download it seperately.

http://linux.softpedia.com/get/Utili...Chm-2552.shtml for .chm files.

Thanks. I have KDE 3.2 which doesn't seem to have kpdf. I'm still a bit confused on installing programs in Linux. I've downloaded the kchm file from your link. Do I just use the Mandrake installer? Is this an RPM file?

Here is the MDK RPM for kchm...

Also you can get kpdf through urpmi on a root terminal:

# urpmi kpdf

This Mandriva Club requires a paid membership. Aren't these programs available for free somewhere?

The packages are available for free. Just check for available packages using urpmi/rpmdrake. it's probably installed already so try running "kpdf" in a terminal first before attempting the install.
