    Default acroread in M7 fresh install won't open

    In fresh, very fresh, install of M7 x86_64 from DVD with KDE and 32 bit runtime when I install acroread from yast2 it won't open.

    Code:
    # zypper if acroread
    Loading repository data...
    Reading installed packages...

    Summary: Adobe Reader for PDF Files
    Description:
    Acroread is a well known PDF viewer.
    
    Adobe Reader is often the only program able to process complicated PDF
    files, such as PDF forms. However, there are many bugs where we cannot
    do anything about because it is proprietary binary-only software.
    
    Please consider whether it is possible to use free PDF readers like
    okular, evince, xpdf, ghostview, ... instead.
    Code:
    :~> /usr/lib/Adobe/Reader8/bin/acroread
    Gtk-Message: Failed to load module "atk-bridge": libatk-bridge.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
    ERROR: ld.so: object '/usr/lib/Adobe/Reader8/Reader/intellinux/lib/suse-do-not-grab-server.so' from LD_PRELOAD cannot be preloaded: ignored.
    ERROR: ld.so: object '/usr/lib/Adobe/Reader8/Reader/intellinux/lib/suse-do-not-grab-server.so' from LD_PRELOAD cannot be preloaded: ignored.
    I *can* use okular for most of what I need but felt this should be mentioned. Feels like a missing dependency any ideas?
    Thanks,
    Dwight Paige

    Check the bug reports.
    But I wouldn't miss that app if it was dumped. Haven't used it in 5 years at least.
