I applied @olvie's patch to bundle the old harfbuzz and glib libs, acroread should work now.

There are reports about this software dying after 15s again.
known workarounds:
• use another pdf-reader whereever possible
• use acroread windows version in wine (HowTo: https://appdb.winehq.org/objectManager.php?sClass=version&iId=27093&iTestingId=92286)
• remove /opt/Adobe/Reader9/Reader/intellinux/plug_ins/EFS.api (this might have unknown consequences regarding your data and software functionality, especially related to internet connectivity)
• comment out the ipv6 line (::1) in /etc/hosts (this might impair your ipv6 connectivity and functionality of locally communicating programs)

This package *is not* out-of-date, it serves outdated software.

Error 404 for the file :

              http://archive.virtapi.org/packages/l/lib32-librsvg/lib32-librsvg-2.44.9-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz

As dwatzke says, replacing it in PKGBUILD by :

            http://mirrors.aggregate.org/archlinux/multilib/os/x86_64/lib32-librsvg-2.44.9-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz

does the job

dwatzke commented on 2020-02-12 15:13

@Geballin: it crashes for me too, using ACRO_CRASHLOG=1 just generated an empty file into the dir you mentioned

so I tried to adjust the exec to launch it via gdb and got sigsegv with this bt:

lib32-librsvg-2.44.9-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz can be downloaded here: http://mirrors.aggregate.org/archlinux/multilib/os/x86_64/lib32-librsvg-2.44.9-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz

I replaced this in my pkgbuild and then it went fine

mueslo commented on 2020-02-12 12:22

building fails because http://archive.virtapi.org/packages/l/lib32-librsvg/lib32-librsvg-2.44.9-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz cannot be found

@cschmid : I can't help without any information about the crash. On 3 differents Arch installations it is working for me (opening acroread and opening a pdf). Gtk warnings are just warnings about themes, they are "normal" (I have them too) and are present even if the application is working.

To have a crash log and knowing from where come your problem, you must launch : ACRO_CRASHLOG=1 acroread Crash logs are created in /tmp/acroCrashLogs/

If you have no crashlog, maybe you simply have a seg fault with a library call. In that case, run acroread in gdb, edit line 22 of /usr/bin/acroread and change it to : exec gdb ${1+"$@"}

Doing so you could know where you have a seg fault (and I could investigate starting by there).

cschmid commented on 2019-12-29 15:58

I can confirm that it does not start as described by @giswqs.

@Geballin: Is this a upstream or package issue?

giswqs commented on 2019-11-21 19:13

Does not start. Got the following message:

(acroread:31920): Gtk-WARNING **: 14:11:16.998: Unable to locate theme engine in module_path: "adwaita",

(acroread:31920): Gtk-WARNING **: 14:11:17.001: Unable to locate theme engine in module_path: "adwaita",

paupau commented on 2019-10-17 13:17

so since some updated acroread crashed for me, whenever I try to open a presentation created by LaTeX, including an animation from the animate texpackage. Has anyone experienced this? Do you have a solution? the crash log reads

/usr/bin/acroread [0x850ab41] [@0x8048000]
linux-gate.so.1(__kernel_sigreturn+0x0) [0xf7f48b40] [@0xf7f48000]
I can provide an example pdf, if that helps!

xenolith commented on 2019-09-28 08:53

Doesn't start for me :(

(acroread:16518): Gtk-WARNING **: 18:52:47.278: Unable to locate theme engine in module_path: "adwaita",
(acroread:16518): Gtk-WARNING **: 18:52:47.279: Unable to locate theme engine in module_path: "adwaita",

nothing in the crash logs either when run using ACRO_CRASHLOG=1 acroread

I also needed to remove /opt/Adobe/Reader9/Reader/intellinux/plug_ins/Annots.api and ~/.adobe/Acrobat/9.0/Synchronizer to avoid a crash when opening some PDFs.
