    Default acroread bug

    Hello,how can I fix acroread bug, which create file C:\nppdf32Log\debuglog.txt in my home directory after start opera browser. I have fix it few versions of openSUSE ago, but now after clear install of openSUSE 12.2 I'm not able to found the right thread on bugzilla. I know that one way is uninstall arcoread, but I don't want to do that. I was able to fix it and keep arcoread, but i forget how.Thanks for your help.

    what are you doing? maybe running a windows version of acroread in WINE,
    or crossover, or a VM or what??

    i ask, because i'd fall over dead if i saw my _Linux_ native acroread
    try to write anything to a C drive!!

    what version are you running? run "acroread -v" in a terminal to learn,
    mine is:

    Code:
    denverd@linux-os114:~> acroread -v
    9.5.1
    denverd@linux-os114:~>

    Nono, it is a known problem of acroread in Linux, it writes a file named
    like he says:

    Code:
    cer@minas-tirith:~> ls C\:\\nppdf32Log\\debuglog.txt
    C:\nppdf32Log\debuglog.txt
    cer@minas-tirith:~>
    It is not the C: drive, but simply named like that. As far as I know
    there is no way to avoid that, simply ignore the file.
