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This package *is not* out-of-date, it serves outdated software.

After I upgraded lib32-tdb from 1.3.15-2 to 1.3.16-1, acroread crash again.

I'm having the same issue. Tried removing and re-installing, but no dice. I get a couple warnings about adwaita theme, then it just stops with no error.

@tiago.casal no clue, I just compiled and ran it in a clean chroot yesterday and it worked fine. Could you run it with strace and send me the output?

this is pretty much dead to me, I can't get it to work for quite some time now. If ran from the terminal it just finishes the process, no error, no nothing.

any ideas?

Would be a good idea to include the needed old libraries in the package. See https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?pid=1802218#p1802218 where you can get the PKGBUILD patch.

Sorry, I cannot give support, this is not my software. This package is known to be broken, please find another pdf viewer.

Edit: See piona's comment below.

acroread segfaults for me.

====PACKAGE WAS COMPROMISED==== thanks @qwence for the detailed info. I'm surprised that this doesn't happen more often (or scared than it does and we don't ever find out)
