PDFs open with GIMP?

Hi, if I drop PDFs, such as datasheets, into the project folder or a sub-folder and then double-click them from the KiCad project window they open with GIMP. Wouldn’t the operating system default document reader or PDF-reader be a better choice?
I’m on Ubuntu 14.04LTS.


You can set the preferred PDF viewer in the ‘preferences’ menu.

OK, looking in preferences I have it set to “system default PDF viewer”, and that gives me GIMP!??
If I double-click the PDF from a normal file-folder I get “Document Viewer” like I should.
So this is more or less broken at least on Ubuntu 14.04LTS.
