Bug Description

Binary package hint: pdfedit

Hopefully all the required info (Ubuntu, pkg) is included as it says!

1) I expect: To see all available files with extension .[Pp][Dd][Ff]
Result: Only files with extension .pdf appear, .PDF files invisible.

2) files without write permission won't load.
from app (cmd-line and info box report): "Error while loading document filenamewhatever.pdf
Unable to open file."

from cmd line:
"2:KERNEL:cpdf.cc:getInstance:2350: Unable to open file "filenamewhatever.pdf" in mode=rb+ (reason=Permission denied)"

This was the more informative one, so I figured out what was wrong, however the app should still be able to open the PDF file even if it can't edit it. A short-term fix would just to make the error dialog box the user sees more descriptive.
