Description gmud 2007-01-23 09:56:25 UTC
Version:           0.5.5 (using KDE 3.5.5, Gentoo)
Compiler:          gcc version 3.4.6 (Gentoo 3.4.6-r1, ssp-3.4.5-1.0, pie-8.7.9)
OS:                Linux (i686) release 2.6.18-suspend2

The following pdf can be opened with xpdf and acroread, but not wiht kpdf. Kpdf shows only a very small empty rectangle.

SVN commit 626574 by aacid:

The mimetype system is returning that the file at http://www.phydid.de/showpdf.php?artikel_id=91 is an octet-stream for some strange reason.
As kpdf is a pdf viewer assume octet-stream are pdf.
This is a quick fix for KDE 3.5.7 but for KDE 4 and okular this fix is not admisible. :-/
