I disagree. I have at least three PDF viewers installed, any of which
could legitimately call itself "Document Viewer". Until the day comes
when there is Only One True Viewer, this is going to persist, and
obscuring the real name of the app helps no-one.

Why not "Evince Document Viewer"?


Also, if you are going to have a generic name, at lease have the
option of picking the application in the Preferred Application menu.
It is there for your WEB browser, mail reader, and a few others...

Why don't you edit your menus to fit you own needs and wishes?

Isn't that what Patrick was suggesting?

Anyway, thanks all for the responses. It's heartening to know that I'm not the only person who thought that was unnecessarily cryptic.
