Do you have Google Chrome installed? If you do have it installed, you can just make a link to the libpdf.so plugin in the Chromium folder:

sudo ln -s /opt/google/chrome/libpdf.so /usr/lib/chromium-browser/

After that, enter about:plugins in Chromium, search for Chrome PDF Viewer and enable it.

If you don't have Google Chrome already installed, I suggest you to download the .deb package and extract it. Then, you must navigate to the folder data/opt/google/chrome and copy the libpdf.so to the /usr/lib/chromium-browser/. More details.

@madox2: I'm glad it worked :) –  Yamaneko Nov 23 '12 at 13:46
remember to restart chromium for the libpdf.so to take effect. –  qed May 10 '13 at 22:22
or you could install the pdf.js extension Chrome Web Store - PDF Viewer –  agusti Feb 7 '14 at 9:39
