Foxit

Asked by mel on 2015-02-19

I have a really, really basic and stupid question. I install pipelight and foxitreader, it seems to be fine as it install files somewhere. But where/how I started the program? I couldn't see it anywhere.
Thanks
Mel

Hi,

Pipelight is about browser plugins, so if you would like to use the usual Foxit PDF reader as a separate program, you should use plain wine. If you want to use the pdf reader in your browser, you will need to open the settings of Firefox, go to the application tab and change the program / plugin responsible for PDF files.

However, it seems like Foxit is currently broken in Pipelight and does not install correctly. The Foxit plugin plugin never worked reliable in wine and we thought about removing it again. In contrast the adobe reader seems to work quite well, so this could be an alternative for you.
