There are two problems with Acrobat reader 7.0.9. One is a well
documented sed error, and the other is that it cannot run with the newest
gtk2. I have it running with one library from gtk 2.11.3 and here is a
summary of the workaround.
Assuming you have installed the latest gtk2, 2.11.6 AND
you DO have libgtk-x11-2.0.so at version 2.11.3 or
1) copy the file libgtk-x11-2.0.so.0.1103.0 to /usr/lib
2) edit the file acroread and return 0 from the function
3) and add these lines before acrobat is started
This will force acrobat not to use the current libgtk-x11, but rather to
use the last working version.
Here is my diff file for these changes:
