i am having a problem at first i thought with AdobeReader 7.0 brwoser plugin, but now i see i actually can't even run AdobeReader on it's own in FC6.
when i first installed Adobe i selected the automatic plugin option which didn't work. so i then went for the manual setup & chose global. again i don't believe that worked so i chose to install the plugin for mozilla & after that when i tried to install the plugin for firefox i got the error that the plugin already appears as though it has been installed. so kewl i thought the plugin is seen from mozilla plugin folder.
whenever i try to open a pdf file in firefox now the browser will hang up not responding with a grey blank window.
i checked the fedora FAQ & i didn't install running... yum localinstall AdobeReader* ... i used the adobe INSTALL* exe in the folder created when i untar/zipped the download file. i also removed the nppdf.so from ~/.mozilla/plugins folder (created with Adobe manual plugin installer i assume) & created a symlink in /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins.
done... but i get the same problem. so i thought i would run just AdobeReader on it's own & make sure it opens pdfs ok... /usr/local/Adobe/Acrobat7.0/Reader/intellinux/bin/acroread i get the error...
/usr/local/Adobe/Acrobat7.0/Reader/intellinux/bin/acroread: error while loading shared libraries: libBIB.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
so i do a search for the file... [root@/usr/local/src]$ find /usr/ -name libBIB.so which returns...
so the file is there & now i am not sure what to try next.
i'm using AdobeReader_enu-7.0.8-1.i386.tar.gz & everything seems to install fine without error except with regards to the plugin install mentioned earlier.
any ideas or help would be appreciated.
