Running Ubuntu 12.04 with Gnome 3.2.


  1. When I double click a PDF attachment in evolution, it opens up the ~/.cache/evolution/tmp/ directory in Nautilus instead of opening the PDF.
  2. If I right click the PDF-preferences I see that correct application is set for PDFs.

How can I make Evolution open the PDF with the default application automatically?
