Adobe Reader 7.0 Not opening


Hi all,
I installed the Adobe Reader of version 7.0.
When I am trying to open this application ,a splash appears
and then disappears.
The adobe application is not opened.....
Will there be any dependency RPMS for Adobe to work.....


Thanks In Advance,
Sailaja Bhandaru

run the reader in the shell terminal. that way you'll get to see any output and/or error output.

The answer is right on the post above yours. Install compat-libstdc++-33.

Your package is already installed. When rpms have been installed you do not refer to them by the ful name, version and rpm extension. You refer to them by name or name and version e.g. AdobeReader_enu instead of AdobeReader_enu-7.0.5-1.i386.rpm. To uninstall the package you would do,
Code:
#rpm -e AdobeReader_enu

Fc5

all this Adobe Reader stuff worked in a heartbeat under FC4.

I installed FC5 from scratch...no update/upgrade.

maybe first reverse the yum for compat-libstd++-33
