permissions / umask settings for saving a file

Aug 8, 2007 7:41 AM

When saving a file using either acrobat itself or the acrobat plug in for firefox the umask settings of the linux system are not honored. The file gets saved with permissions 600 instead of permissions 644. This is a problem for users who save files in shared directories that are accessed by other users. Currently, users need to manually adjust the permissions of the file after they save it when they save onto a shared directory so that other users can view the pdf.

Is there anyway to override the acrobat defaults for this?

    I have the same problem. We have to share pdf files with other users.  I tested with different Adobe readers (8.x , 9.x ). I tested on RH Linux and on Solaris - always the same result. File permissions after saving are 600 (rw-------) instead of 644 (rw-r--r--).  Adobe reader ingores the systems standard umask.

     

    Any help whould be great.

     

    Regards

    Tom
