Unhappy Mint12 KDE beginners maual

Searching for a PDF free download manual for Linux Mint 12 Lisa KDE downloaded this past February. Then I need to know the command to type into 'Terminal' to activate the file. I've been struggling on my own up to this point and I'm ready to get detailed documented help and instructions on printed pages.

You mean you're looking for a PDF on your system that you already downloaded?

$ locate -i .pdf

would be one way. You'd have to sort through the results unless you knew the actual name of the file or a general location you stored it, e.g.:

$ locate -i .pdf | grep -i mint
$ locate -i .pdf | grep -i /home


Then when you find it, open it with okular, or whatever other pdf reader you have on your system. You can either open the PDF reader first, like through a menu, command, etc., and then load the PDF document into it, or do it all on the command line with the program command and the path to the file, e.g.:

$ okular /path/to/myfile.pdf
