Well, if you are running Redhat 9 you are a bit stuck and my not be able to use Adobe Reader 7. I am sure Redhat 9 used gtk 2.2.x so you will have to manually upgrade to gtk 2.4. Why not save yourself the trouble and install a newer distro like Fedora Core (which is the replacement for Redhat 9 and below).

hey have this same issue. i am trying to install adobe reader 7 on my debian etch system. but i am only assuming that i am missing the gtk toolkit. i installed from the tarball and updated my path statements. if i run acroread from a cli, i get the splash screen for the reader, but it just goes away with no error.

and yes i know that in the adobe reader readme file in the tarball, it does not list debian as a supported linux os, so maybe thats all it is, but i do get the splach screen

anyone have any ideas what packages i might be missing? i did a net etch install and installed xorg, kde, firefox and thats about it, maybe a game or two from testing.
