How to see djvu files in Linux?


I have istalled the djvulibre on Linux, but I still can't open any djvu file through mozilla. How do I get this thing to work?

Depends what you've done already...you might need to link the plugin to the firefox/plugins directory.

Code:
djview4

Firefox has a limited list of file types for which you can specify the action to be taken when they are downloaded, but the list doesn't include pdf or djvu, and you can't alter it.

If I left-click on a link to a djvu file it tells me to get a plugin and then that I need to install Oracle's Java. Since I don't want that, I always right-click, download, and then open with djvulibre. It's not really all that much trouble!

yes but right click does not offer 'download' as an option. The site i'm using only offers the DJVU file to view in a browser which has the plugin. And my firefox does not have the plugin required.
