Chromium PDF view=fit parameter resolved but not for armhf

Wed Dec 06, 2017 9:58 pm

Hi,

There is a known problem about viewing PDF in chromium with parameter view=fitH, fitV, since an update to Chrome, when certain types of plugins, known as NPAPI plugins like Adobe Reader were no longer be available. This may be why some of the plugins are no longer working. Now chromium uses its own pdf viewer.

I read that with pleasure maybe there will be a solution for my problem (missing view=fitH and view=fitV part of the PDF in chromium) on site https://bugs.chromium.org/p/chromium/is ... l?id=64309, when developers tried to implement these viewing/missing parameters into current pdf-viewer.

I was writing to the implementator, because he is the owner of that ticket. He sent me a link where the changes is already in the latest Chrome build on the Dev channel. I can get it at https://www.google.com/chrome/browser/d ... devchannel
This is a developer version 64.0... I tried that in Windows, it is working correctly, but I couldn't install it to my raspberry pi 3:
'package architecture (amd64) does not match system (armhf)'

What do you think, do you know about a website, where I can download chromium developer versions for raspberry pi 3, for system armhf (that contains this correction), or do you have any idea to solve my problem?

Best regards,
D. Zsolt

I found the src code of the program.
https://chromium.googlesource.com/chromium/src

And instructions for building:
https://chromium.googlesource.com/chrom ... uctions.md
https://chromium.googlesource.com/chrom ... ium_arm.md
I have never tried to build a program for linux.

Is it possible to build a right version for the RPI3 from it?

An alternative to using Chromium is kweb suite and Evince PDF viewer:

Thanks for the idea!
I tried to set the Evince PDF viewer in Chromium (and Mozilla) (=opening pdf inline with Evince), but it was unsuccessfull. Browser opened the pdf with the basic viewer.

Do you know about any other alternatives which with I can open pdf files in chromium (with full screen)?

kweb suite includes 'minimal kiosk browser' did you try using that as an alternative browser ??
