Adobe and FC6 issue

Hi all,
I was having a problem with Adobe Acrobat reader and FC6 and happened across this site that has a fix. Apparently it's a known bug.
I'm posting the site here so I can tag it, might be of use to someone.

Just upgraded to FC6 64 bit and ran into the same acrobat problem. Did the fixes in the acroread script but now, when it gets to the line that calls the actual binary acroread, the script just exits. Quite frustrating since I can't seem to get any output about what might be wrong.

I downloaded the rpm Adobe Reader 7.0.9 from the Adobe site to update my FC6 on a i686 box, and it didn't work.

I used the fix from the link in tmick's 1st post and it works fine now. Had to do the symlink as well.

Thanks guys
