Whats the story with the PDF files mentioned below ? Are they flawed , damaged or not confirming to standard ? None of my pdf readers can open them. Not even Firefox or Adobe Reader. Im trying to read more on Guix.

None of the above. You likely saved the target of the ‘foo.pdf’ link, which is an HTML file:

$ curl -LO
 $ file talk.2018-05-16.pdf
talk.2018-05-16.pdf: HTML document, ASCII text, with very long lines

Saving this as ‘foo.pdf’ will still be an HTML file.

The ‘plain’ link on the right serves the raw PDF file:

$ curl -LO $ file talk.2018-05-16.pdf talk.2018-05-16.pdf: PDF document, version 1.5

Kind regards,
