    I'm not sure what version of openSUSE you are using but a quick Google search; I found a bug relating to openSUSE 11.2 and Acrobat 9.3. The suggestion was to use a free PDF viewer.

    Hope that this helps.

    Cheers!

    How did you install it? Via one of the repositories?

    software.opensuse.org: Search Results

    I don't use Adobe in the Linux world, but for help on the specific error, you might need to contact Adobe for support (as it is proprietary code).

    acroread 9.4 works very well on OS 11.3. I'd try to reinstall it via Yast.

    Hello
    Thanks

    I have opensuse11.2 on mt system. I tried to install Adobe 8.1.7 (AdobeReader_enu-8.1.7-1.i486.rpm) on my system. Then it gives me 2 failed dependencies:
    libGL.so.1 is needed by AdobeReader_enu-8.1.7-1.i486
    libGLU.so.1 is needed by AdobeReader_enu-8.1.7-1.i486

    i just cant seem to find these 2 for opensuse 11.2

    I had earlier installed adobe 7.1 . It worked properly for few hours but then again it started giving errors.

    Thanks..

    Why do you install such old and outdated versions, the non oss repo always
    contains an actual build of acroread, I recommend you remove that acrobat
    from your system and then simply type as root in a terminal

    Code:
    zypper in acroread
    Till a few weeks ago I had 11.2 on my PC and acroread 9.3 from the non oss
    repository and did not have any problems with that.

    i see these are your first two posts to our forum -=Welcome=-

    if you are new to Linux or just openSUSE you need to _not_ install the
    old fashioned (so last century) way of going to the different web
    sites and download and click click click...and wonder why it won't work..

    instead if you know how to uninstall that adobe, do that and open
    YaST, click on Software Management, then type in acroread, click
    Accept and you are done..

    same for most other things...they are in repo.. read up on all of that
    here: http://en.opensuse.org/Concepts

    lots and lots of stuff to learn, but it is worth it....believe me..

    by the way, i guess before you installed the Adobe reader there was
    already a free open source reader default installed...(which is MUCH
    faster) try, at the command line

    kpdf <filename>

    which might only work if you are using KDE, you should say which
    version and DE you use, or put it in your sig..

    As far as opening up PDF's in Linux thats easy you have 2 very nice PDF readers Evince which is installed by default for Gnome and Okular for KDE. Both are very nice PDF readers and even do more.

    No need. Acroread from openSUSE works perfectly.
    He is installing the wrong version who knows where from and how.
