On my system Adobe reader automatically recognised my printer without any problems. After some exploration I found that the command it is using is "/usr/bin/lpr". If it's asking for a printer command to use it might be worth a try putting this one in.

The world is moving to standards.
PDF is a standard
Adobe is the godfather of PDF
Adobe doesn't provide a good reader for Linux???? Go figure
I think you've gone somewhat overboard by saying that just because one user
has had a minor problem
with it then it's not a "good" product and is "retarded".
It's interesting that you didn't extend the same "shame" to the developers of KPDF for releasing a "retarded" program that shrinks pages. You also didn't consider that the problem this particular user is having might be down to an issue with the operating system, and bestow "shame" on the developers of that system for releasing a "retarded" operating system that Adober Reader can't correctly autoconfigure itself on.
