I am trying -- in vain so far -- to get he Acrobat reader plugin to work
in the Epiphany browser.  I have installed linuxpluginwrapper, and flash
works properly.  My libmap.conf file contains (flash stuff deleted)

# Acrobat with Mozilla/Firebird/Galeon/Epiphany
libc.so.6                      pluginwrapper/acrobat.so

and symbolic links have been added to
/usr/local/lib/linux-mozilla/plugins and /usr/X11R6/lib/browser_plugins
pointing to /usr/local/Acrobat5/Browsers/intellinux/nppdf.so, and the
permissions are correct.  The plugin is listed on the browser, and a
path leads to acroread (it executes fine from the command line).

The plugin is found, but hangs on the splash screen.  I'm using 5.2.1RC,
Acrobat 5.0.8, and Epiphany 1.0.6.  Any ideas would be most appreciated!
