I admit I was creative.  I didn't want to install kpdf since I don't use 
KDE stuff on this laptop.  Since mozplugger wasn't installed I installed 
it without purging it.  

I can give it a shot with exactly your command lines, but is there an 
alternative to using kpdf?  I think evince is what I normally use.
