PDFs and Chromium

As I’m playing with Sikuli (and other tools) to automate some book keeping, I found it unexpectedly hard to disable/change how Chrome/Chromium handles downloaded PDF files.

  • Clear auto-opening settings, in the Downloads section
  • In the Privacy and security section, click Content Settings.
    • Scroll down and click the PDF documents option.
    • Change the “Download PDF files instead of automatically opening them in Chrome”
