How to enable Chromium pdf Viewer plug-in

  • How do I enable Chromium pfd Viewer (a plug-in)the instruction on error message says to go to Menu, Settings.....
    but I cannot find any mention of plug-in or Chromium.
    any ideas? TY

  • It's a hidden, built-in, component extension and it's enabled by default. You just click on a pdf and it'll open in Opera in a tab using the viewer.

    Goto the URL opera://settings/content/pdfDocuments though and make sure "Download PDF files instead of automatically opening them in Opera" is disabled.
