    I never tried to open a PDF until today, but I can't find a PDF viewing app. I thought for sure Webos came with it, but i can't see it anywhere, and its not listed in my apps installed. Checked App Catalog and Preware, and can't find anything there other than paid apps. Tried opening a PDF through Internalz, says that nothing is associated with PDF's.

    Where'd my PDF viewer go, and how do I get it back? WebOS 1.4.5 on Bell Mobility Pre

    Should be "PDF View", unless it's been deleted somehow. May just have to wait for QuickOffice.

    just start typing pdf and let universal search find it. if not, I think the repair utility will put it back. there is also a preware patch available that will prevent you from deleting it.

    QuickOffice is going to be the default PDF viewer for WebOS 2.0? I think currently it is not part of Documents to go. But I could be wrong...

    Just ran the repair utility, didn't fix the issue

    Checked universal search, nothing matching PDF

    So, I guess I'll have to either doctor, or wait until 2.0. PDF isn't imperative to me right now, so I can wait. Thanks for the help people.

    SOLVED

    Found this thread.

    1. Launched Jason's Internalz
    2. Navigated to /var/luna/data
    3. Menu->Preferences->Show hidden (YES)
    4. Opened .hidden-apps.json
    5. Deleted the line with the PDF viewer in it
    6. Saved file
    7. Menu->Restart->Luna

    All good now.
