Hi Steven,

I just checked, and evince, and mozplugger are already installed, and
the application/pdf section of
/etc/mozpluggerrc looks exactly like your example. What am I missing???

I found the reason is that evince can's open a pdf file if the file name is without pdf extension name. for example, the same file with two names " test.pdf" and "test"

evinve  test.pdf  OK
evince test CAN'T OPEN IT
