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This package *is not* out-of-date, it serves outdated software.

Same here, even with the latest patches the acroread don't start anymore. I need it only to make PDF formes from e-deklaracje to work

acroread crashes just after starting. The UI is not even visible. I uploaded strace logs to:

Could you change the description to "Adobe Acrobat Reader is a PDF file viewer"? Maybe I am being pedantic, but when I searched for acrobat this one didn't show up.

Would it be possible to please bundle lib32-cairo 1.15.12-1 too? This restores the printing capability.

After I upgraded lib32-cairo from 1.15.12-1 to 1.15.14-1, I can't invoke a dialog box for printing.

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?
