    Hi there,

    The plugin fails to load because it is expecting the file to end in one of the supported file extensions (in this case “.pdf”). It appears UbuntuONE is using some other kind of code to represent the true name of the document. I believe this will still work in GDE (though admittedly I have not tried it) if you turn off the plugin’s own error checking.

    To do this in GDE 2.4.x –

    GDE Settings > Advanced Options/Plugin Behavior > check “Disable internal error checking”

    To do this in GDE 2.5.x –

    GDE Settings > Advanced tab > uncheck “Check for errors before loading viewer”

    Hope this helps.



    thanks kevin, for your fastest reply, It’s working 🙂

    But need a small change, the below code

    [gview file=""]

    results in displaying file download link with hash instead of its file name.

    Download ( 1YNlvxVvHowzunowk9VS7d, , 151KB)

    how can i change the download file name?

    Sorry for missing your reply to this message. What string are you using to customize the download link? I assume one of the options you’re using is filename, which GDE isn’t aware of in this case. You will probably want to remove that portion.
