Foxit Reader Install Issue


Having a problem with Foxit PDF Reader on CentOS v6.

Install proceded without any warnings.

However, selecting from the menu, all I get is the spinning globe and then just the mouse arow.

What should my next step be to trouble-shoot this?

Try calling it from the command line and see if there are any error/warning messages generated.

Assume CentOS 6.9 - 64 : No issues here.

Install to /opt/ :
su
# ./FoxitReader.enu.setup.2.4.0.14978\(r254978\).x64.run

... Opens OK : Menu → Office → Foxit Reader
