Aborted:
The error message in "Subject" was reported
previously. It is surprising that it wouldn't have been fixed
or that the README wouldn't discuss it.

Is there a downside to adding the export LANG=C ?

greets

had same problem and was researching when ran across your post. found the answer:

you need to set your LANG variable to C, which is not the default in newer redhat releases. i edited the /usr/local/Acrobat5/bin/acroread script and added:

LANG=C; export LANG

near the top. it worked for me.

cheers. alex.

Anyone know how to resolve this?
I installed Acroreader on my Linux box that is running RedHat 8 and I am recieving this nice little error when trying to launch it. I haven't been able to find anything about this message in any of the documentation that Adobe has made public. Thanks (oh yeah i am a newbie.)

Font Packages will no longer install with 5.0.6
The font packages at the Adobe web site will
no longer install complaining that incorrect
acroread version was found.

Acrobat as a Netscape Plugin
I had some difficulties adding Acrobat as a Netscape plugin. However, I did get it to work and wrote an installation guide for it. It is available at http://www.linuxheadquarters.com/howto/apps/acrobat.shtml.
