Never used SuSE, but this should help:
mingdao@silas:~$ whereis xine
xine: /usr/bin/xine /usr/lib/xine /usr/include/xine /usr/include/xine.h /usr/share/xine /usr/man/man1/xine.1.gz /usr/man/man5/xine.5.gz /usr/share/man/man1/xine.1.gz /usr/share/man/man5/xine.5.gz
mingdao@silas:~$ which xine
Issue the first one to find where Xine is located; and the second to find the executable. It should also be in your KDE menu under Multimedia. NB:
Linux is case sensitive, and a capital X in Xine while checking for the file isn't correct.
For Firefox using Adobe Reader for .pdf files, open a Firefox browser and in the Firefox address bar, type:
If it's not listed in your plugins, then you didn't setup Adobe Reader properly.
Might try the instructions from the INSTALL file first:
If you are facing any problem in getting the installation to work for your browser, please copy the following file to the plugin folder of the browser:
If that doesn't work, since I'm really into "doing things the proper way," I'd make sure I had the latest version (7.0.8) of Acrobat Reader for Linux from Adobe
. Then I'd uninstall the present one, and properly install the new one (and install the browser plugin with it). I've done this today on two Slackware installations, and it's not very hard.
If you don't want to reinstall, the easiest way I know to setup file associations for Firefox if you already installed Reader is to download one...
First, find your executable for Adobe Acrobat Reader, which might also present a problem:
mingdao@james:~$ which acroread
which: no acroread in (/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/X11R6/bin:/usr/games:/opt/www/htdig/bin:/usr/lib/java/bin:/usr/lib/java/jre/bin:/opt/kde/bin:/usr/lib/qt/bin:/usr/share/texmf/bin:.)
mingdao@james:~$ whereis acroread
mingdao@james:~$ locate acroread
/usr/local/Adobe/Acrobat7.0/bin/acroread <<<--- that's it
My systems couldn't find "acroread" with whereis or which because it wasn't in the PATH. And even though I had the browswer plugin installed, when I tried to open a .pdf file I got an error message telling me it wasn't in the PATH. So, I symlinked it into my $PATH:
ln -sf /usr/local/Adobe/Acrobat7.0/bin/acroread /usr/local/bin/acroread
This might be a cheap, improper fix -- but it works.
Then try to get a .pdf file off the internet
and in the box which says you've chosen to open a PDF file, and What should Firefox do with this file?, select "Open with" and browse to your acroread executable, then check:
"Do this automatically for files like this from now on."
This might not be pretty, but it will work for Firefox to open .pdf files with Acrobat Reader.
