pdf problems

1) PDF files are not displaying properly in GhostView. I get this message:

Error: /invalidfontESP Ghostscript 7.05.5: Unrecoverable error, exit code 1
in /F2
Operand stack:
--dict:8/8(L)-- F2 1
Execution stack:
%interp_exit .runexec2 --nostringval-- --nostringval-- --nostringval-- 2 %stopped_push --nostringval-- --nostringval-- --nostringval-- false 1 %stopped_push 1 3 %oparray_pop 1 3 %oparray_pop .runexec2 --nostringval-- --nostringval-- --nostringval-- 2 %stopped_push --nostringval-- --nostringval-- --nostringval-- --nostringval-- --nostringval-- %array_continue --nostringval--

Do I need an "ESP Font"? Where can I find it? The same pdf's display fine in Xpdf, but they won't print. My pdf Mandrake Start-up Manuals display and print without a problem from GhostView.

2) Problem getting Adobe Acrobat Reader to work. I Installed the reader in /usr/local/Acrobat5. Here's what happens when I try to run the start-up script:

[user@localhost Acrobat5]$ ls
bin/ Browsers/ Reader/ Resource/
[user@localhost Acrobat5]$ cd bin
[user@localhost bin]$ ls*
user@localhost bin]$ acroread
bash: acroread: command not found
[user@localhost bin]$ ./acroread
bash: ./acroread: No such file or directory
user@localhost bin]$ ls -a
./ ../*
[user@localhost bin]$ ../acroread
bash: ../acroread: No such file or directory
[user@localhost bin]$ ls -l
total 8
-rwxr-xr-x 1 bin bin 7063 Jul 2 07:08*

Any help would be most appreciated. I need to be able to view and print these pdf's for work.

Thanks for you help.

Why don't you try to execute the file you have in the directory? Try ./
As filename extensions are normal parts of the file name, you need to type them as well (or use the tab key for automatic filename completition).

I got Adobe working. It was a problem when it installed, but the error message flew right off the screen so I never saw it. Sure is ugly on Linux, though. I'd love to get KGhostView / Ghostview working right.

Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?
