Edit -> Preferences... -> Downloads -> Add format to filetype with required
action, e.g. "Save to desk", "open with kghostview" (or the X equivalent).
The latter is recommended as, while unconventional and somewhat unnatural,
it is quicker than opening Adobe Acrobat Reader for the first time. It's
functionality at the cost of speed -- a proper tradeoff.
Hope it helps,
