okay me again

continued from redhat7 post

i managed to get back into my user account by logging in as root and chown-ing the directories i needed back to the user.

I think when i installed acroread (Adobe Acrobat reader) it somehow changed the owners on all the directories with user as owner to root as owner - this seems very odd.

can anybody tell me why this occured?
i installed it from my user account.

thanks anyway

You didn't change any ownerships when installing or anything? What about when it installed, is the program working okay?
Really not sure why a program would change the ownerships of every user. How many user accounts did you have setup? was it just that one or all of them.

acroread aborts


had same problem and was researching when ran across your post. found the answer:

you need to set your LANG variable to C, which is not the default in newer redhat releases. i edited the /usr/local/Acrobat5/bin/acroread script and added:

LANG=C; export LANG

near the top. it worked for me.

cheers. alex.
