Xpdf for Solaris 10?


I have alot of PDF files that are stored. I would like to open them and read them..But Solaris 10 does not have a built in PDF reader..

How can I download and install X-Pdf or acroread for Solaris 10 on the CDE desktop?

Never mind...I have the GPDF instead...Now, with that, I have to OPEN and search for my pdf files and then opening with the Gnome PDF viewer...Now, thats the long way to do things...Is there any way to do this or open them in the short way??

Thanks

I think I remember you can associate files with a .pdf extension to xpdf or whatever viewer you want (the best one is evince) from the file browser (dtfile), but I forgot how to do it.
I've stopped using CDE so long time ago, it may be possible with one of these icons on the task bar, or by editing a couple of ~/.dt files.

Xpdf is available on Blastwave. You can download it from there.

xpdf is already installed in Solaris 10. Just search for it, maybe installed somewhere under /opt ???

I have my xpdf working just fine. However, a new acrobat reader does not exist under Solaris 10. The last one, is something like version 3. Acrobat has ceased supporting x86 solaris, but not Sparc
