acroread does not open in F26

after I updated my F25 to F26 acroread said it is unable to locate theme engine murrine in module_path, thus, I installed murrinegtk-murrine-engine.i686 but now, when I run the command acroread, it simply does not open .. Can anybody help?

Re: acroread does not open in F26

is your fedora installation actually 32-bit? if not you need the x86_64 murrine engine package and not i686

Re: acroread does not open in F26

Of course, it's 64 bit, but after upgrading to f26 acroread said: unable to locate theme engine murrine

Thus, I googled and found the advice to install also the 32-bit package - now, acroread does not complain anymore - however, it still does not open. Maybe, instead of installing the 32-bit package, the solution woul have been to explicitly add murrine to the module path, but I don't know how to do this. Is anybody running acroread on F26?

Re: acroread does not open in F26

Same thing here. I just noticed this as well. I used it in 25 just fine. Did a complete wipe and install of 26. Here is the error Im getting when I try and launch it.

Jul 13 19:04:08 acroread[11220]: Unable to locate theme engine in module_path: "adwaita",
Jul 13 19:04:08 acroread[11220]: Unable to locate theme engine in module_path: "adwaita",

Re: acroread does not open in F26

try uninstalling acrobat reader and re-installing it if you haven't already. also check the dependencies below are installed:

libcanberra-gtk2.i686
adwaita-gtk2-theme.i686
PackageKit-gtk3-module.i686

if it still doesn't work, I'd suggest atril as an alternative document reader for now. Because adobe reader isn't a Fedora Project package you can't really open a bug about this on bugzilla either because they'll just close it straight away. Adobe don't maintain the reader any longer either.

Re: acroread does not open in F26

Seeing the same problem on the F26 install on my work machine. None of the proposed solutions either here on in other forums work. Everything else in the upgrade from F25 worked, Acrobat Reader was the only problem. Luckily it's not a big deal on my machine at work, I can live with that. But for my home machine it might be a deal breaker; I use Acrobat Reader a lot. So I'll hold off on upgrading my home machine until a solution has been found.

Re: acroread does not open in F26

If anyone wants to try and install the last version of adobe reader for linux on 26 and troubleshoot here is the command to do so.

dnf -y install ftp://ftp.adobe.com/pub/adobe/reader...6linux_enu.rpm

Re: acroread does not open in F26

actually you really need to take out the -y from that command to troubleshoot. the -y switch will automatically input yes for any required user input so you won't know what has been changed or not.

That 9.5.5-1 version is the one I've been using for the last 4 years, and it's the one that doesn't work on my F26 system.

I saved the strace output from my F26 system at work, and tomorrow I'll compare it to the strace output when running Acrobat Reader on my F25 system at home. One thing I noticed was that on the F26 system there were messages saying
Quote:
Gtk-WARNING **: Unable to locate theme engine in module_path: “adwaita”
and in the strace output the sigsegv occurred after not finding some Adwaita files. That's interesting, because I don't even use Adwaita on that system. It makes me suspect that in F26 maybe GTK+ has something hard-coded to look for Adwaita first. Of course I tried installing the adwaita-gtk2-theme package (both 64 and 32-bit), and it didn't help. Installing gtk2-engines didn't help either (64 and 32-bit).

Re: acroread does not open in F26

Hmm, Acroread is disabled? That sounds like a security feature...

Success with Centos 7 installation

Out of curiosity I installed the given 9.5.5 rpm in a Centos 7 system. Centos 7 is supported until 2024. It required 67 packages to be installed and others updated but it installed fine and works perfectly.

Since Fedora 25 is only supported for 6-7 months more if the Fedora 26 bug cannot be fixed this provides an option for those who need AdobeReader for its unique functions such as editing pdf forms.

Code:
sudo yum install /mnt/data-raid1/Downloads/AdbeRdr9.5.5-1_i486linux_enu.rpm 
Loaded plugins: fastestmirror, langpacks
