[SOLVED] Adobe Reader not working in Mint 14 Cinnamon

Postby snake2903 on Sun Nov 25, 2012 4:30 am

I installed fresh version of Mint 14 64-bit Cinnamon. Everything works great, even my Radeon 3000 Series graphic card, but i have problem with Adobe Reader.
I downloaded latest 9.5.1 version from Adobe site, install .deb package. I see Adobe Reader shortcut in menu, but when i press it nothing happens.
I also try to open PDF document with Adobe, but also nothing happens. Is this maybe problem with 32 bit support in 64 bit mint, because only file i could download is i386 adobe reader.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

It looks like there might be dependency issues with the one downloaded from Adobe, or possibly 9.5.1 has troubles. I did the same thing you did and had the same results. However, if you don't mind version 9.4.7, here's what you do:

Code: Select all
        sudo add-apt-repository "deb http://archive.canonical.com/ precise partner"
        sudo apt-get update
        sudo apt-get install acroread


It looks like it installed the dependencies, and actually runs.

I am running Mint 16 Cinnamon and I changed precise to quantal because I thought I would get a newer version. Not sure if it is newer but it worked. Saucy didn't work.
