Summary of problems and solutions, if known, with the Linux Adobe Acrobat PDF reader.
On x86_64 systems, in Suse 11,
Acroread crashes with the message:
terminate called after
throwing an instance of 'ASErrException', Aborted. This
uninterpretable message gives no clue what is wrong with it.
The same problem occurred when I downloaded a new version from
Adobe's Website. Solution: Install all the 32-bit packages,
especially any 32-bit libraries, from the DVD. These should be
listed as dependencies, but aren't.
Adobe Acrobat reader still has the same font problem that it's had since Opensuse 11 came out. Some documents are rendered properly, while others have strange fonts with tall capitals. Acroread for Windows, and other Linux PDF readers such as Evince, render the documents properly.
And all this time I thought the Dean was just weird.
