Adobereader On CentOS7 Crashes

Hello All,

I can’t get Adobe Reader to run stable on CentOS7, when trying to edit settings or trying to print, it crashes. The issue is people need to digitally sign pdf forms. When I open these forms with anything else then Adobereader, I get EM

To view the full contents of this document, you need a later version of the PDF viewer. You can upgrade to the latest version of Adobe Reader from www.adobe.com/products/acrobat/readstep2.html

I spent a lot of time trying to solve this with other pdf viewers, including google-chrome and Foxit, and trickery with ps2pdf and Pdfedit. Nothing works.

I installed Adobereader following this:
https://www.if-not-true-then-false.com/2010/install-adobe-acrobat-pdf-reader-on-fedora-CentOS-red-hat-rhel/

The signing of these forms is vital to my organization, so any help would be appreciated.

Greetings, J.

  • So I tried installing this on an up-to-date CentOS 7.3 system and it fails to find Error: Package: AdobeReader_enu-9.5.5-1.i486 (/AdbeRdr9.5.5-1_i486linux_enu)
    Requires: libpangox-1.0.so.0

    which a yum whatprovides */libpangox-1.0.so.0 shows as:
    pangox-compat-0.0.2-2.el7.x86_64 : Compatibility library for pangox Repo : epel Matched from:
    Filename : /usr/lib64/libpangox-1.0.so.0

    and even after an install of this package still fails – thus I suspect it relates to not finding the 32 bit version as the epel version installs this in /usr/lib64

    What did you do to overcome this dependency?
