Hi there,

i have a strange problem with my acrobat. I emerged the newest version: acroread -v yields 9.5.4
but when i type acroread aaa.pdf (which is an existing pdf file) nothing happens and i am directed to the prompt:

Code:

<user>@<machine> ~/Downloads $ acroread  aaa.pdf
<user>@<machine> ~/Downloads $


and no acrobat opens. Nothing.

What could be the problem and how can I solve it?

Thanks a lot!

acroread is actually a shell script. Try running it as
Code:
bash -x $(which acroread)
and check where it fails.

Yes, don't do that.

exec replaces the current process with the new process. So, the current process gets terminated irrespective of whether the new process launches successfully or not.

You can try and check whether it is a problem with some 32 bit library (if something got unmerged):
Code:
ldd /opt/Adobe/Reader9/Reader/intellinux/bin/acroread | grep -i found

ah ok, thanks for the explanation.

Code:

ldd /opt/Adobe/Reader9/Reader/intellinux/bin/acroread | grep -i found
        libBIB.so => not found
        libBIBUtils.so => not found
        libACE.so => not found
        libAGM.so => not found
        libCoolType.so => not found
        libAXE8SharedExpat.so => not found
        libJP2K.so => not found
        libAdobeXMP.so => not found
        libicuuc.so.36 => not found
        libResAccess.so => not found



i still need help with that sorry: might this be the reason why it does not start? missing libs?

That's what I thought too. But I have the same libs missing here and it works. Not sure what else can help you :(

When I try to run it manually :

Quote:

$ /opt/Adobe/Reader9/Reader/intellinux/bin/acroread
/opt/Adobe/Reader9/Reader/intellinux/bin/acroread: error while loading shared libraries: libBIB.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory


and this is part of acroread
Quote:

# equery files acroread | grep libBIB
/opt/Adobe/Reader9/Reader/intellinux/lib/libBIB.so
/opt/Adobe/Reader9/Reader/intellinux/lib/libBIB.so.1.2
/opt/Adobe/Reader9/Reader/intellinux/lib/libBIBUtils.so
/opt/Adobe/Reader9/Reader/intellinux/lib/libBIBUtils.so.1.1



so ???
After doing :

Quote:

cd /usr/lib
sudo ln -s /opt/Adobe/Reader9/Reader/intellinux/lib/libBIB.so
sudo ln -s /opt/Adobe/Reader9/Reader/intellinux/lib/libBIB.so.1.2
sudo ln -s /opt/Adobe/Reader9/Reader/intellinux/lib/libBIBUtils.so
sudo ln -s /opt/Adobe/Reader9/Reader/intellinux/lib/libBIBUtils.so.1.1

and so on with the other "not-found" libs...now it is not complaining anymore...but still nothing..

Quote:

$ /opt/Adobe/Reader9/Reader/intellinux/bin/acroread
/opt/Adobe/Reader9/Reader/intellinux/bin/acroread must be executed from the startup script.


when i type acroread nothing happens...
