      • Hi stars,

        For me it’s working normally. Try to reinstall libdatrie i686:

        dnf reinstall libdatrie.i686

    4. Can you please update this for Fedora 29?

      • Hi EP,

        Yes, I can. I tested it and Adobe Reader is running ok on Fedora 29. Installation is a little messy, but should still work.

        • Mine is crashing when trying access anything that opens a dialog (open file, or properties, etc)

    5. It seems Fedora 29 is the end. I can install following these instructions, but rendering is broken, and it crashes when accessing propoerties, or Open File.

    9. after a dnf install on a fedora 28 station, acroread is not launched:

      $ /usr/bin/acroread

      (acroread:4116): Gtk-WARNING **: 13:41:57.652: Unable to locate theme engine in module_path: “adwaita”,

      something missing or badly installed?

      $ rpm -qa | grep adwaita
      adwaita-cursor-theme-3.28.0-1.fc28.noarch
      adwaita-qt4-1.0-4.fc28.x86_64
      adwaita-qt-common-1.0-4.fc28.x86_64
      adwaita-qt-1.0-4.fc28.x86_64
      adwaita-qt5-1.0-4.fc28.x86_64

      • Hi Daniel,

        Did you installed following packages on step. 3a?

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

        I can’t see 32-bit adwaita-gtk2-theme installed.

      • Hi M2S,

        I can’t get this error, what desktop do you use?

    12. Hi,

      It installed successfully on CentOS 7 (latest version) but I’m unable to sign in to the Adobe Document Cloud with the AdobeID from within the Adobe Reader?

      Regards,

    13. I get

      XXX~]$ acroread
      dirname: missing operand
      Try ‘dirname –help’ for more information.
      Segmentation fault (core dumped)

      when I run in on Fedora 29. To be fair, it did not work on Fedora 28 (i.e., before I upgraded), either.
      Not sure how to diagnose the problem further, would appreciate any insights.

    14. Thanks for the useful instructions. Just to let you know that after the installation (on Fedora 28) Adobe Reader was working just as root, probably because I’m using LDAP credentials. I had to do:

      $ dnf install sssd-client.i686

      After that it worked fine with normal users as well.
