I switched back to Fedora after a long time and wow a lot of things have changed!
Fedora 12 is looking amazing and the best part is I could install it on my USB so easily.
And then I found I couldnt open any PDF files on Fedora - I tried installing AdobeReader, xpdf and openoffice.
All of them are just throwing some file format errors.... <I cant push a screenshot now since i removed the packages>
I copied these files from my Windows Drive... i tried changing permissions but that didnt help.
Initally i thought it might be some version conflict but it turned out I couldnt open any pdf's including docs from 5 years back to docs with embedded media content.
I know I havent put any info here. I am looking for a little info on what is needed to get Acrobat/Xpdf working in Fedora 12... And I couldn't get any errors logged so I'd like a little help there if I need to share some debug messages...

I tried evince also
that gave these messages
[root@localhost Presentations]# evince module-development.mgp.pdf
** (evince:5768): WARNING **: Failed to create dbus proxy for org.gnome.SettingsDaemon: Could not get owner of name 'org.gnome.SettingsDaemon': no such name
Error: May not be a PDF file (continuing anyway)
Error: PDF file is damaged - attempting to reconstruct xref table...
Error: Couldn't find trailer dictionary
Error: Couldn't read xref table
I can open these files in Windows and on a MacBook too.... not sure what is wrong here.
Thanks and Regards
