T50 - Are they able to open PDF or Office documents in read only mode

Likely silly question, and may need to go back to a Wyse Windows based unit, but can these T50 open a simple pdf when browsing locally on internet?
And can we install some sort of Office free viewer even if I could just open a Microsoft office spread sheet in read only mode would be good.
Or do I need to go back and install a Windows Based Wyse unit for this functionality?

  • Hi rarthur, lucid-hedley packages should be available through correct repositories for armel architecture: also try http://doc.ubuntu-fr.org/pdf to discover but apt-get install evince should do the trick.

  • Is there an english version of this site. I skipped my French classes in High school. Regret it now later in life.

  • open terminal :

    sudo bash
    cp /etc/apt/sources.list.orig /etc/apt/sources.list
    apt-get update
    apt-get install install xpdf-reader

  • just it's : sudo bash
