Ok, the fix for being able to make Adobe Reader the default app for opening PDFs is:
1. Open the desktop file for acroread in an editor:
- Code: Select all
gksudo gedit /usr/share/applications/acroread.desktop
2. Find the line that says "Exec=acroread" and change it to "Exec=acroread %f"
3. Save the changed file.
4. Open Nautilus, right-click on a PDF file and select "Properties", go to the "Open With" tab, select Adobe Reader 9 and click the "Set as default" button.
You should now be able to open a PDF in Adobe Reader by double-clicking on the file in Nautilus.
