Apr 12, 2009 9:55 AM

I have accept the license, but it will pop up every time I open the document.

My acroread is 9.1 and running on ubuntu.

Please help and give some method to solve it.

    This problem would occur when user do not have write access to "~/.adobe/Acrobat/9.0/Preferences/reader_prefs". You can verify this by doing


    `ls -ltr ~/.adobe/Acrobat/9.0/Preferences/reader_prefs` .




    Scenario when this might happen is when you try launching reader by doing `sudo acroread` , and after that launching it as normal user by just typing acroread.




    To solve this problem, you need to delete or take backup of your reader_prefs file, by doing "sudo rm -rf ~/.adobe/Acrobat/9.0/Preferences/reader_prefs" or use mv command to move it elsewhere ( for backup).




    Then launch reader by just typing acroread.




    If you really wish to use sudo command to launch reader, then use sudo -H acroread (i.e. sudo with -H option).
