Downloading The Magpi in pdf format

Mon Mar 14, 2016 10:39 pm

Hi all
I seem to be having a problem downloading the pdf version The Magpi. On clicking download pdf Adobe opens and "Loading" is displayed. At about 10% of the way through the download Adobe freezes and I have too force close my browser. I have tried the download on a laptop using windows 7, a desktop using windows xp as well as the Raspberrypi itself.

Is there another way to download the magazine - ftp perhaps.
Your help would be much appreciated.

Darryl

Try using wget on your Pi:

Code: Select all

wget https://raspberrypi.org/magpi-issues/MagPi43.pdf

My approach is in the browser save the file. Then open it with PDF-XChange Viewer http://www.tracker-software.com/product ... nge-viewer It is faster software and has fewer required updates.
