I'm having difficulties getting acroread7 to work within firefox-1.0.7.
I've google'd and read some on the list archives... and am still not
up and running.
I get no errors, it IS listed in 'about:plugins', and acroread7 works
from command line. I just get nothing. Anytime i follow a link to a
*.pdf... firefox just immediately says 'Done' in the status bar. If I
wait forever... still nothing.
All other plugins (mplayer, QT, flash, etc) work fine.
Here's what I've done to get here:
- Fresh install of 6.0-RELEASE from ISO
- CVSup ports and sources (this morning)
- build world/kernel
- installed linux_base-8 via ports
- installed firefox via ports
- installed linuxpluginwrapper via ports
I copied libmap.conf-FreeBSD6 to /etc/libmap.conf. Cut some stuff out.
Left in the acroread sections (among others):
# Acrobat7 with Mozilla/Firebird/Galeon/Epiphany/Konqueror
Note that I changed the [pointer?] to where the shared object actually
resides. I also created a symlink from
Any help is appreciated. I've seen a few posts (some quite old) of
others having problems with acroread7 and firefox... but nothing has
solved my problem.
