Hi,

Just wondering if anyone has had any luck running Foxit Reader on 8.04? I've always used this on XP and it's by far and aay the best PDF reader out there...

I've downloaded the current Linux version which is a single executable file "ReaderLinux". However when I try and run it nothing happens; no errors, no windows, nothing.

The Foxit site says that it's been tested on Fedora 4 and SuSE Linux 10.0, but doesn't mention Ubuntu.

Cheers,

Mike.

Try running it from the terminal to capture the errors, if there are any. But epdfview beats all PDF Viewers ;)

I tested it myself just because I was curious. If you run it in a terminal, you get a Segfault.
