The latest updates broke Adobe Reader.


Since installing yesterday's updates and upgrades Adobe Reader has refused to start and gives this error:

Quote:
dirname: missing operand
Try `dirname --help' for more information.
/opt/Adobe/Reader9/Reader/intellinux/bin/acroread: error while loading shared libraries: liblzma.so.5: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Today's updates and upgrades didn't solve the problem.

I'm about to upgrade xz which will replace liblzma.so.5 with an upgraded version, but none of the previous updates have touched it. No idea why it would have gone missing on your system unless xz got removed somehow. Hopefully that didn't happen, but if it did you'll understand why the xz package is still a .tgz.

Thank you for the response. Version 5.0.3 was installed and now 5.0.4, but, unfortunately, that didn't solve the problem. The error message remains the same.

@willysr,
AdbeRdr9.5.1-1.

same version here, but it's working on my system
i wonder, did you build the package using SlackBuild or did you use .bin package from Adobe?
I'm using .bin package available here ftp://ftp.adobe.com/pub/adobe/reader...9.x/9.5.1/enu/

I'm using the .bin package from Adobe. Just went to download the latest version only to find that 9.5.1-1 is the latest version.

A stupid question: Where did you find 9.5.1-1?
The latest verion I can find is 9.5.1. It has no dependency on liblzma.

Is it possible that some library that acroread depends on depends on the missing "liblzma.so.5"?

Code:
$ acroread -v
9.5.1

Update:

If I remove "/lib/liblzma.so.5", then "kde4-config" cannot run.
Although acroread calls "kde4-config", it still starts properly with the error
Code:
$ acroread
kde4-config: error while loading shared libraries: liblzma.so.5: cannot open shared object file:such file or directory
kde4-config: error while loading shared libraries: liblzma.so.5: cannot open shared object file:such file or directory

Thanks cwizardone and willysr!

I presume "-1" is build number or similar things.
I actually have the same package installed and "acroread -v" gives "9.5.1".

So ... no dependency on liblzma.

Yes, libxml2.so.2.8.0 seems to need liblzma.so.5. liblzma.so.5 comes with xz. cwizardone, maybe you have a 64-bit system with 32-bit compatibility libraries? In that case you can use convertpkg-compat32 to make a 32-bit compatibility package of xz.

That did it. Made and installed the compat32 package of xz and Adobe Reader is now working.
Thank you very much!

Firefox Nightly now includes a PDF reader. It's not great but it does the job. An extension is available for the stable versions.

There is also a Javascript extension for Firefox that is able to view PDF:

Pretty impressive.
