I applied @olvie's patch to bundle the old harfbuzz and glib libs, acroread should work now.

There are reports about this software dying after 15s again.
known workarounds:
• use another pdf-reader whereever possible
• use acroread windows version in wine (HowTo: https://appdb.winehq.org/objectManager.php?sClass=version&iId=27093&iTestingId=92286)
• remove /opt/Adobe/Reader9/Reader/intellinux/plug_ins/EFS.api (this might have unknown consequences regarding your data and software functionality, especially related to internet connectivity)
• comment out the ipv6 line (::1) in /etc/hosts (this might impair your ipv6 connectivity and functionality of locally communicating programs)

This package *is not* out-of-date, it serves outdated software.

Hi, didn't you consider using AppImage for packaging acroreader? It seems like this format was built exactly for the purpose of packaging old unsupported software. You can just seal a working combination of libraries and should just work without ever need to tweak or update.

Upgrading lib32-libx11 from 1.7.0-1 to 1.7.1-1 makes acroread crash again. I've downgraded lib32-libx11 to 1.7.0-1, and acroread works fine.

Some of the source-files are outdated or not available anymore:

There's still another crashing issue. If we open the printing dialog and open properties in it TWICE (open - close - reopen), acroread will crash.

Downgrading lib32-libcups to 2.2.10-1 solved this issue.

tattsan commented on 2020-08-02 10:01

@ujihisa @Geballin If we revert lib32-gcc-libs to 9.3.0-1, opening preferences crash seems to be avoided.

Segfault in Spelling.api. Removing disables spellchecking but otherwise seems to affect no other features.

darkbasic commented on 2020-05-03 15:34

It crashes with: Gtk-Message: Failed to load module "appmenu-gtk-module"

Thorned_Rose commented on 2020-04-25 21:18

@Tetrapyle facepalm no I didn't... I'm so utterly exhausted at the moment and not thinking straight.

I got the same segmentation fault you did

Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.

@j0hannes that looks like you have not enabled the multilib repository
