open a pdf-file at a certain page from within HTML

Asked by Juergen Walther on 2009-01-23

i used to adress pdf-docs relative and add a #page=<page number> construct to open pdf documents at a certain page. It does not seem to work on newer versions on any pdf reader on any system i use (MS windows xp with adobe acrobate, ubuntu with document viewer). See sample (bibliographic entries):

 <a href="../pdf/1998_2.pdf#page=17">Jounal:1998:2:18</a>,
jounal, 2(1998)18,
<i>Keywords: kw1; kw2</i>

any chance to open pdf at a certain page from within html?

Play mp3 and dvd under Ubuntu install skype googleearth acroread and other stuffs using Medibuntu

First please install

You need to have extra repositories enabled..

Please first enable the universe and multiverse repository:

Open System → Administration → Software sources → [ Tab Ubuntu software ]

enable "Community-mainteined Open Source software ( universe )"
enable "Proprietary drivers for devices ( restricted )"
enable "Software restrictecd by copyright or legal issue ( multiverse )"

Close and confirm the repository reload.

Type the following command in a terminal (applications → accessories → terminal)

sudo aptitude install vlc

To get better dvd playback and optional packages here the medibuntu available software list
you need to add the medibuntu repository to your /etc/apt/sources.list file:
( here the medibuntu howto but see below )

In short type or better copy and paste the rows, below one row a time then press enter:

ubu_codename=$(sudo lsb_release -c | cut -d: -f 2 | sed 's/^[ \t]*//;s/[ \t]*$//')
sudo wget$ubu_codename.list -O /etc/apt/sources.list.d/medibuntu.list
wget -q -O- | sudo apt-key add - && sudo apt-get update

Now to install, type:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras libxine1-ffmpeg
sudo aptitude install libdvdread3 libdvdnav4 libdvdcss2 regionset gnome-mplayer
sudo aptitude install non-free-codecs w32codecs
sudo aptitude install gstreamer0.10-pitfdll gstreamer0.10-plugins-good
sudo aptitude install gstreamer0.10-plugins-ugly gstreamer0.10-plugins-ugly-multiverse

give your user password when requested, you don't see nothing when you type it, then press enter.

You can also install other Medibuntu repository provided optional software :

sudo apt-get install skype
sudo apt-get install googleearth
sudo apt-get install acroread

Hope this helps
