Description Xiao-Yong Jin 2006-08-05 19:10:16 UTC
When it tries to load pdf plugin provided by acroread7-7.0.8,1, firefox (or other equivalent browser) oops with the error

LoadPlugin: failed to initialize shared library /usr/X11R6/Adobe/Acrobat7.0/ENU/Browser/intellinux/nppdf.so [/usr/X11R6/Adobe/Acrobat7.0/ENU/Browser/intellinux/nppdf.so: Undefined symbol "__ctype_b_loc"]

I think it could be caused by the lack of the symbol in the pluginwrapper/acrobat.so provided by linuxpluginwrapper-20051113_4

How-To-Repeat: Install linuxpluginwrapper and acroread7.  Run firefox/mozilla/seamonkey and try to load the pdf plugin.  Simply type about:plugins in the address line should be sufficient.  The pdf plugin doesn't load, but the error comes.

This is a problem of linuxpluginwrapper, not Adobe Reader itself.

I made patch that solves this problem for me
on FreeBSD 6.1-stable. You can download it at

As I see, other plugins (flash, etc) seems to
be working too.

it looks like a fix has been committed in September 2006 already. Can this
PR be closed, then?
