I just installed F13 from the Live Installer CD today. Most things are working well, but not Evince.

I can't use it at all to view images nor PDFs.

I get a "Unable to open document error":

However, eog is able to view the same file just fine...

Any ideas?

Thanks.

There was a known issue with evince in F13 during the beta. I just tried searching for the bugzilla but the site is incredibly slow at the moment, so I gave up. It noted a work-around that worked for me, however I think they also fixed it during an update. Have you updated since you installed?

Thanks for checking bugzilla. Yes. It's running with the most recent updates.

It seems like there might be something wrong with MIME handling in general. Nautilus does not generate thumbnail previews for image files or PDFs, and doesn't seem to know which programs can open the file types.
