 The location is not a folder.

 The pdf file exists and is viewable, just not using the view button in lyx.

 Just to be clear, you're saying that if you do View  PDF or View  PDF
 (pdflatex) in LyX, you find the aforenamed PDF file in the LyX buffer 
 directory,
 and you can open it manually in your preferred viewer, but LyX reports the
 quoted error message?  That being the case, if you look at Tools  
 Preferences 
 File Handling  File Formats and select the appropriate (say, PDF (pdflatex)),
 is the Viewer field set correctly?

Yes to everything above the last question. That was the problem. The
Viewer field was set to xdg-open. I changed it to acroread and it works!

Many thanks.
