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This package *is not* out-of-date, it serves outdated software.

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

@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.
0xf2b7bf46 in ?? () from /usr/lib32/libtdb.so.1

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

@Thorned_Rose did you type run? See Geballin's comment and mine below. I then got a segmentation fault from libtdb. Do you have?

Thorned_Rose commented on 2020-04-25 08:22

My most recent installation of this is not running at all (when I've installed it previously, it's run fine).

GDB comes up with:

[...]
Reading symbols from /opt/Adobe/Reader9/Reader/intellinux/bin/acroread...
(No debugging symbols found in /opt/Adobe/Reader9/Reader/intellinux/bin/acroread)

and then sits there doing nothing more.

nipsky commented on 2020-04-13 12:25

Please add libffi6 from AUR to the dependencies

Tetrapyle commented on 2020-04-11 13:57

Thanks Geballin Actually I had to edit /opt/Adobe/Reader9/bin/acroread because /usr/bin/acroread is a soft link to the former and this path seems to be parsed in the script.

$ cd /opt/Adobe/Reader9/bin/
$ sudo vim acroread

@Tetrapyle /usr/bin/acroread is a shell script doing a lot of shitty things like setting lib path... so you can't just launch /opt/Adobe/Reader9/Reader/intellinux/bin/acroread , that's normal it didn't found the libraries. You should edit line 22 of /usr/bin/acroread and change it to : exec gdb ${1+"$@"} After that, just launch acroread (or create /usr/bin/acroread_dbg from /usr/bin/acroread with line 22 changed)

Tetrapyle commented on 2020-04-08 10:33

Sooo.. thank you Geballin you made me install gdb and learn how to launch it. There's no other log.

/usr/bin/acroread is a script. On Gnu-Archlinux it should launch /opt/Adobe/Reader9/Reader/intellinux/bin/acroread .

$ gdb /opt/Adobe/Reader9/Reader/intellinux/bin/acroread
