I've some problems with pdf documents that somebody sent to me. If I open them with my usual pdf reader (evince) this message pops up:

      Quote:
Please wait...
If this message is not eventually replaced by the proper contents of the document, your PDF
viewer may not be able to display this type of document.
You can upgrade to the latest version of Adobe Reader for Windows®, Mac, or Linux® by
visiting http://www.adobe.com/go/reader_download.


Going to www.adobe.com... a .deb package is offered (but i386 instead of amd64, my arch). If I try to install it by dpkg -i an error message appears:

      Code:

dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of adobereader-esp:
 adobereader-esp depende de libgtk2.0-0 (>= 2.4).

On the other hand, my system has installed libgtk2.0-0 version 2.24.10-2 and libgtk-3-0 version 3.4.2-5.

Can someone give me a clue? Thanks

Luis_P

You might also try to install multiarch-support for that package from adobe to install along the necessary 32-bit libraries

Unfortunately, if I try to get okular in my system, I must install 97 packages, because it (my system) is Xfce (gtk) and not KDE (qt). I think it should have a cheaper solution .

You can try xpdf. Very small and fast...

I don't understand this logic. I just use the best application (imo) for the job. I like to use a minimal WM like E17, i3 or Openbox but gtk or qt makes no difference. I also think Okular is the best application for PDFs.

zathura is a quite "cheaper" solution. with a little unusual user interface.

Evince is the first choice on XFCE, LXDE and Gnome - very fast and reliable.
Greetings,

I think Evince, Okular, Zathure etc all use libpoppler to render pdfs so the message in the first post will probably not go away. At some point I needed to fill out a form inside a pdf and the Adobe linux packages was the only thing that worked. If your pdf file also has such "fancy" features there might not be a way around Adobe.

I'm finding this entire thread hard to believe.

I sit here with a KDE/sid updated every day.

I use Okular and pdf's every day as I have for many years.

I fill out government and corporate pdf forms with Okular every day.

Maybe you missed the "Show Forms" at the top of the pdf?

You people are using sid, right?

redsid, can you open these files (from the bug report)?
http://undergradresearch.fsu.edu/Gfx/summer_award.pdf
http://www.deutschepost.de/downloadServ ... 121211.pdf

My system has libpoppler19 0.18.4-4 and I get the same message as Luis_p. The bug thread suggests it's a javascript problem and not so much an XFA problem.

Thanks to everybody who has answered to this thread. With xpdf I am able to see the documents, but cannot to fill out a form inside.

Despite the use of proprietary software does not like me, I think the simplest way should be to install the .deb package provided by Adobe. But If I try so, I run up against the dependency of libgtk2.0-0 (>= 2.4). Does somebody know how and where I can get it? Is it necessary, taking into account that my system has the version 2.24?

Regards.

Well, although it might be not a good advice, as aptosid developers are strongly against it, you can use the infamous French multimedia repository to install Acrobat Reader. (You can then disable it. Don't DU with it enabled, unless you don't mind losing aptosid support!)
