Re: [opensuse-factory] Let's keep acroread for pure reasons of usability.

Hello,

I've used openSUSE as my main OS for many years now. Until this thread
about the removal of acroread, I didn't even know we had Acrobad Reader
available in the distribution

evince has proven more than satisfactory for all of the online/semi
online/offline PDF forms I've had to deal with, which coincidentally
been quite a few in the last weeks. Form filling, saving, printing, all
fine.

Lucky you!

Perhaps even most users never need the Adobe Reader.

But there is a constant (relatively low) level of incoming bugs
where printing some PDFs fails and then usually printing that
PDFs from the Adobe Reader works.

See the "Background information" in
https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=838487#c7

The latest issue is

FYI:
Personally I do not care if openSUSE povides this or that kind of
non-free software - personally I could help myself.


Kind Regards
