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This package *is not* out-of-date, it serves outdated software.

acroread crashes if I install lib32-libcanberra. If I remove it, it works again.

After I upgraded lib32-libxml2 from 2.9.8-5 to 2.9.9-1, acroread crash again. Now I've downgraded the following three lib32 libraries:

lib32-tdb, downgraded to 1.3.15-2

lib32-cairo, downgraded to 1.15.12-1

lib32-libxml2, downgraded to 2.9.8-5

and then acroread works well.

Just built and ran this, it's definitely not perfect but despite what others are saying it's working for me.

I'm able to open PDFs with it, and also print those PDFs without any issues.

There were a few things I noticed that would cause a crash:

  • Hovering over "Sign" in the Document menu in the menu bar.

  • Right clicking anywhere in the PDF view area

  • Going to Edit > Preferences in the menu bar.

Definitely doesn't work.

Throws Gtk warnings about adwaita and unable to find xfce-notify.rc.

acampoverde_arch commented on 2019-01-05 18:45

Yes, it does not even work for me either.

Not working, does not start at all.

Faalagorn commented on 2018-10-25 05:08

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.
