Internal error running Adobe reader

Anyone solve the Adobe Reader (v.9.4.2) "internal error" failure after activating Reader from desktop? Running in a terminal from desktop shows the following:

(acroread:9554) : Gtk-CRITICAL **: IA__gtk_widget_modify_font: assertion 'GTK_IS_WIDGET (widget)' failed

Acroread from command line works fine.

Any ideas???

Search "gtk2" in Synaptic and post which relevant packages you have installed. By the look of it, you're missing something important.
