Since installing Leap 15.0, I now see Adobe Reader no longer works.

Has anybody made any progress since this thread was initiated? I looked
ant the binary that is finally loaded and found:

I just got acroread running in 15.0. You need to install the 32 bit
patterns, and you need to copy some /usr/lib libraries from 42.3 into
/usr/lib/Adobe/Reader9/Reader/intellinux/lib. Thanks
Joerg Kuehne for this finding :-)

You need:


Maybe librsvg

Caveats: acroread does not exit (the window closes, the process
remains), has to be killed 9.

Sample signed pdf file (thanks Bengt Gördén):

Sample PDF Form file (thanks jdd):



*pdfsig*, a CLI, can verify signatures. It is in package poppler-tools.

Alternative proprietary but gratis readers:

*Foxit* for Linux

Doesn't display the signature data.

Appears to display *some* forms correctly. It does *not* display the
sample form vide-cerfa_13754-02.pdf that jdd provided in


There is a reader gratis version.

It is a java program, comes with its own JRE.

It does display signature info :-)
In each field (of the signature) I can right click and select "details",
and this info is indeed detailed.
It seems possible to import root certificates.

It loads *some* forms correctly, but not vide-cerfa_13754-02.pdf. First
issue is that the form uses javascript, gives a security warning in the
reader. If accepted then gives an error: "Unable to open document as it
is a Livecycle Dynamic XFA form".

Finally, it can also take photos of the document (PNG file or clipboard).

It is a very good viewer, except for certain forms.

*master PDF editor*

Does open vide-cerfa_13754-02.pdf.
Buttons work (requires javscript support)
It does have some problems displaying the letters inside the boxes as I
It is an *editor*, not a reader.

It can place signatures, but not in the free version.

I do not see how to view signature data. Doesn't even say that the file
is signed.
