Hello Grant, I do not remember doing anything special, but acroread works for me on amd64 with, these: acroread-9.5.5-r2 (nsplugin) xorg-server-1.16.4 (glamor ipv6 nptl suid udev xorg) profile : [1] default/linux/amd64/13.0 * and of coarse lxde-0.5.5-r4 If you want to know how other things are set, just ask. I cannot live without acroread. I have one phantom problem. Often the pdfs autoload with gimp, not acroread. It seems like a differnet problem everytime I fix this, where via a dialog popup, preferences in seamonkey ..... It just keeps happening over and over and again; I have no idea why. I did hack extensively at updating all of my radeon/xf86 setting recently. hth, James
