    Default Mozilla-1.7.5 + plugger-5.1.2 : nothing happens with pdf files ?!?


    Hi

    I have following ports installed on my FreeBSD
    5-Stable system:
    mozilla-1.7.5_2,2
    plugger-5.1.2
    acroread-7.0.0

    In Mozilla, Help->About Plug-ins, shows me a long list
    of Mime types that are handled by plugger:

    File name: npplugger.so
    Plugger version 5.1.2 [...cut text...]
    Config file: /usr/X11R6/etc/pluggerrc-5.1.2
    Helper binary: plugger-5.1.2
    Controller binary: plugger-controller
    OpenOffice helper: plugger-oohelper

    When I click on a pdf file, I can verify with the ps
    command that plugger-5.1.2 indeed has been launched:

    plugger-5.1.2 2576,1,38,27262978,0,0,920,607 \
    acroread -tempFile +useFrontEndProgram \
    -geometry +9000+9000 "$file"

    The mozilla window is empty and has
    "Running helper ..." in the bottom.
    However, nothing happens after this.
    No pdf file loaded, nothing!

    Any idea what is causing the problem?
    A problem in the plugger configuration file?
    Or a problem with acroread-7.0.0?

    Using plugger with, for example, realvideo files,
    works fine.

    Regards,
    Rob.

    Meanwhile I've solved my own problem:

    I updated my ports and downgraded from acroread-7.0.0
    to acroread-5.10_1,1; that solved my problem.

    I guess there's something broken between acroread-7
    and the plugger configuration.

    Regards,
    Rob.

    Hi folks,

    The problem seems to be that acroread 7 no longer supports the
    "+useFrontEndProgram" switch. This is appended to the acroread command
    in
    pluggerrc. Removing this switch from pluggerrc causes acroread to pop
    work, but it pops up in a separate window. Does anybody know what
    the acroread 7 equivalent of useFrontEndProgram is?
