Hello Everyone,
In my experiments, I found that if you have the right copy of Mandriva 05, which includes Adobe Reader 7.0 with the dotpup "undeb/unrpm" the file can be converted easily and copied into Puppy and seems to work fine.
It's over 20mb's in size.

you can go directly to adobe's site and download the package with tar.gz extension. it can be installed easily and works fine except for an error message at the start up. Do you have that also?

I think MU was talking about the very same error while he was talking about the adobe reader in MUPPY.

anything new with this, useless yet distracting error message

Get rid of the faulty plug-in error by renaming /usr/local/Adobe/Acrobat7.0/Reader/intellinux/plug_ins/PPKLite.api to PPKLite.api.alt

Hope that helps.

Thanks WhoDo that solved the problem right away.

I wonder for what purpose one would write an api that only gives an error and you don't lose anything when it is discarded?

anyway, what would happen if I just delete it? i will try that today.

Just for the record,
The Mandriva Package also gave the same error. I just deleted that Plug-in as well all was then good. Very Happy

hi,
I just installed Acrobat reader 9.5 - as rpm - to my puppy, but it doesn't display some files properly what epdfview does: Acrobat reader just shows white pages and headers. (There are some pdf files loaded well.) What could the problem be?

fobq,

I installed a deb file from here that seemed to work ok.
http://ubuntuhandbook.org/index.php/2013/09/ubuntu-13-10-quick-tip-install-adobe-reader/

This was Precise 5.4.3. Adobe is a big resource hog.

Cheers,

Not sure of your problem but when it comes to size version 8 is a better deal (36MB sfs) and seems to work with anything i tried...

foxit on linux is quite good but unfortunately they ceased developement...
