Sorry, yes it is MATE.
Looking at package manager, I see that Atril (which I have never heard of before) IS installed.
But that leads to the question, as to, why when I right click on a PDF file, the viewer that is listed as the default program for opening the PDF is shown as EVINCE and not Atril. If Atril is what is being installed, why would it not be listed as the default viewer for PDF type files ?
Sounds like to me that MINT is sort of mixing apples and oranges - both fruits but not the same fruit !!!!
