Opening PDF from WhatsApp only allows Save as and not open pdf directly.

Post by Makarios »

I am using the whatsApp web desktop client from the Software manager in Linux Mint 19.3 Cinnamon.

My issue is that I receive pdf files in whatsApp on a regulaer basis. to open this I need click on it, and the only options I have is "save as"....and not open direcly in a pdf reader ( x reader is installed by default)

As I do this often, its frustrating to first click and save and then to use Nemo again to browse for the folder....and sometimes I forget which folder, then I need to save as a 2nd time, remember and then double click then pdf to open it in Xreader.

is there a better way?
