Then the attached patch fixes the problem you see in there.


You know, in a terminal run "patch < acrobat.patch" in that directory.

Thanks, this appears to work. The acid test for me will be when FF see's a .pdf, and calls acroread to display it. If I can quit that w/o waiting around for about 1:30 before the exit x I clicked on to work, I'd say its fixed.

But I'm confused, my question post dates 11/20/06, and it's now 12/08/06, so I'd very nearly forgotten about it. A lack of short term memory at my age is a curse.

Old man enters doctor's office.

Doctor:  Well, I have bad news, and I have worse news.
Old Man: Ok, give me the worse news first.
Doctor:  You've got cancer, and you are going to die in 6 mos.
Old Man: Oh. Hmm. Well, give me the bad news.
Doctor:  You also have Alzheimer's disease.
Old Man: (after a pause to let the news sink in) Well, at least
         it isn't cancer!

You have found the bank of Larn.

I speak only for myself, and I am unanimous in that!
