Editing /usr/share/FDSubmenu/viewers/epdfview.desktop and changing

epdfview %f



should do the trick. :)
On a completely unrelated note - someone should change the way FDSubmenu calls
applications, as the current implementation freezes fdsubmenu until the started
process terminates - I think using subprocess.Popen should work, but I haven't
really looked that closely at the source, yet.
