Installed V8 on 14.04.01, when printing report it throws following message:

Unable to open document “file:///tmp/sale.report_saleorder-1.pdf”.

File type plain text document (text/plain) is not supported

Any help is very much appreciated.



Document Viewer cannot open text files. Are you sure that the file sale.report_saleorder-1.pdf is not corrupted PDF file? Do other, correct PDF, in this location throw this error?
