Opening PDF in external viewer


#1

Hi!

I’m running Brave in Linux Debian Stretch. Brave version information:

Brave: 0.18.36
rev: 7ab85e97318fef041433b0c3d73b457205fae805
Muon: 4.3.22
libchromiumcontent: 61.0.3163.79
V8: 6.1.534.32
Node.js: 7.9.0
Update Channel: dev
OS Platform: Linux
OS Release: 4.9.0-3-rt-amd64
OS Architecture: x64

I want to open PDF files in an external program. That doesn’t seem to work. I disabled the internal viewer from settings, and now Brave always wants to download pdf files… “save as” -requester pops up asking for file name.

The external viewer launches just fine if I then double click the file on Downloads bottom bar. But can’t Brave open it automatically, without going through “Save as”?

Same problem still with 0.19.53. Any ideas?

do you mean you want for the PDF reader to be opened inside the tab?

No, I want to launch an external program with the pdf.

Currently my only choices are the internal viewer, or saving pdf to a file…
