Reading PDF Documents
#1
Hi

I am a newbie to the Tinker Boards forum. I have Android up & running & I have a hopefully simple question. How do I read a PDF document? Finder doesn't recognise the file type.

Thanks

Michael

install okular.
In the terminal type:   sudo apt install okular
When prompted type shift y.

Should open pdf file with okular. If it doesn't, do the below.
Right click the pdf file and open with okular.
I think Android has okular.
