i think this also hits me now.
no more acroread.
also the version from
ftp://ftp.adobe.com/pub/adobe/reader/unix/9.x/9.5.5/enu/
does not work anymore.

and this version does not use suse-do-not-grab-server.so library.

do you have solved the problem?

I'm using okular from KDE. Never had any problems with that, even with
formulars in PDFs.

It doesn't support javascript, and some forms use it. No Linux PDF
viewer does.

Actually new okular has some support for forms I remember.

Yes, /some/ support :-)

I have a sample form downloaded years ago from
"http://smarte-forms.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2011/03/birth-certificate-application-eform-tt-sample.pdf";.
Now gives "ERROR 404: Not Found."

Okular displays this text:

"This document has XFA forms, which are currently unsupported."

The page has buttons that do not work in okular. Also, there is context
help for each field when I hover with the mouse, in adobe, but not in
okular.

Otherwise, it displays similar to acroread, and possibly prints
correctly. I have not tested to generate a PDF with the fields filled,
but IIRC, it should work. If not, print to file.


The document is also signed, but there is no information of this in okular.


(I have tested using Leap 42.3, but I can also test with TW another day)
