Hi
I downloaded a pdf on RasPi (which is a tutorial for scratch), but want something to read it on, so i don't have to use my laptop.
What do you suggest, and how do I get them?

Thanks
Sam :D

(Also, i find midori is crash prone, is there other, better browsers to use, and how can i get them?)
Thanks
Sam

You do not say what distro you are using but here goes

Try
xpdf name_of_my_pdf_file.pdf
or
acroread name_of_my_pdf_file.pdf

If neither of those works you can install it in a way which depends on your distro. If you are on Debian try
apt-get update
apt-get install name_of_the_program_you chose

If you want a better browser than Midori, you can try Chromium, See instructions at
