Thread: Acrobat reader wont start

  1. #1

    Default Acrobat reader wont start

    Hi openSuse users,
    since my last update yesterday acrobat wont start any more.
    The error message is
    Code:
    /usr/share/themes/Sonar/gtk-2.0/gtkrc:88: error: unexpected identifier `progressbarstyle', expected character
    I already removed the gtk2-metatheme-sonar pkg and installed the opensuse branding theme, then install gtk2-metatheme-sonar agin. Noting helpt. The only thing that has changed is, that the error message is gone. Now acrobat just does not start.

    Hope somebody can help. I need to do an urgent print job until Friday (other pdf viewer produce a different print result)

    Hi
    Is there a hidden file in your home directory called .gtkrc is so there
    may be where the error is.

    Can you create a test user and login, then see if acoread works for the
    test user.

    Hi malcolmlewis,
    I deleted all hidden files containing gtk or gnome in the filename. Deleted also .acrobat

    Nothing helps.

    I'll try logging in with another user this afternoon.

    Thx for your reply.

    are you asking about the firefox plug-in, or the stand alone
    application "Adobe Reader"?

    Hi
    Have you tried uninstalling acroread and then logout, then log back in
    and re-install acroread.

    Hi malcolmlewis,
    yes I tried your solution but it did not work aswell.
    Today I made some updated and now I'm getting the previous error message when I'm launching acroread from console.

    Code:
    /usr/share/themes/Sonar/gtk-2.0/gtkrc:88: error: unexpected identifier `progress barstyle', expected character `}'
    By the way: I printed my work on my brothers pc. So the problem is not urgent anymore. But would be nice if my acrobat reader would work again. :-)

    Try using Clearlooks GTK theme and start Acrobat again, to see if that
    helps.

    May I suggest that you shred the Acrobat Reader and switch to something less consuming and stubborn? There's a lot of alternatives, that make Adobe's reader obsolete: kpdf, xpdf, okular

    I always thought that was the standard advice for a Windows application. Never thought I'd see it in a Linux forum
