I found a way to embed a PDF and provide a hyperlink to it using hypgotoe. So, this is similar to what I am currently doing

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{embedfile}
\usepackage{hypgotoe}
\embedfile{/home/pavan/test.pdf}
\begin{document}
\href{gotoe:embedded=/home/pavan/test.pdf}{description}
\end{document}

The problem is that I am not able to get the hyperlink. I see "description" in my final PDF but there is no hyperlink that links my embedded file. What am I doing wrong here?

Perhaps you are using a PDF viewer that does not support GoToE links. –  Heiko Oberdiek Dec 23 '12 at 18:54
    
Ah, now that you mention I noticed that when I use Okular to view the file, there isn't a hyperlink but I get a prompt to save and view the embedded file at the beginning. And, when I used document viewer I see a hyperlink but it open my embedded file. Any work around? Is there any other way to embed files so that it works irrespective of what I use to view the pdf? –  Pavanred Dec 23 '12 at 19:42
    
It is PDF viewer dependent: A test worked fine here with Adobe Reader, but neither with PDF-Xchange Viewer nor SumatraPDF. –  Speravir Apr 22 '13 at 22:38
