Adobe Reader failed to display PDF


I've just had Adobe's reader fail to display a PDF file, with the message "insufficient data". The strange thing is that the invisible text can actually be cut and pasted!

I know that I can use Evince, and I did it read the document perfectly but I prefer acroread. Has anyone else experienced this failure and got an explanation?

Reader version 8
Document format 1.5 (Acrobat 6)
Document produced with LuraDocument 2.28

I prefer kpdf
But if Adobe's reader doesn't work, use the open source stuff - it's very good now.

I'd complain to them in the first instance.
