Angry getting adobe reader to print

Hi everyone,

I'm very new to this...

I installed Abobe reader on Mandrake 9.2, but whenever I try to print with it, it says that it's loading and never does. I tried to install this file from the CDs that came with it, but with no luck. Any ideas?

I wonder why it's trying to load openGL libraries to print... weird.

Anyway, I don't have a good answer for you, other than to suggest trying other (better) software. Xpdf is my personal favorite; GhostView is another good one. I've never had problems printing from either of those.

Thanks for getting back to me. I've been using Adobe because the viewer that comes with Mandrake doesn't let me fill in downloaded files. I wasn't able to install the files from those links you gave me, but I'll try again in a few days.
