Setting the default pdf viewer

Postby WalidSaladin » Tue Feb 19, 2013 2:05 pm

Could you please tell me how to set 'Adobe Reader 9' as my default pdf viewer in Kile? The current default viewer is 'okular' which is not installed on my university's Linux network.

Thanks for your update!

I thought okular may often be installed by default. Perhaps your university's Linux version is a bit older, and still has kpdf installed, the predecessor. You could try kpdf, or evince if it's a Gnome system.

I mention this because the Adobe Reader doesn't support synctex, and (at least on Windows) it locks the output file which prevents re-compilation.

Finally, Linux sysadmins are often friendly and gladly support users, so perhaps just asks the sysadmin to install okular or to update the system. A bonus could be the newest version of TeX Live. ;-)
