    Feeback for Acroread 9.X.X and Solaris10_x86

    miket7777

      Thank you for porting Acrobat Reader 9.3.3 to Solaris10_x86.

       

      This what I am observing with 'acroread' on Solaris10_x86

       

      When I launch it, acroread is responsive for 3-5 seconds and then it gets completely unresponsive. trussing it reveals that it is on a loop opening and testing ALL of the font files on my system.

       

      Please note that I use X11+fontconfig and I have asked fontconfig to cache the descriptions of all fonts including fonts from te TeXlive2009 distributions. I agree that the number of visible fonts is large but it appears that acroread bypasses fontconfig and goes to directly "check" all font files.

       

      Is this a neceaasry step or acroread just relies on old habits and ignores fontconfig cache ?

       

      thanks ....
