Additional Comments

There are two major problems. First, the renderer doesn't work properly. After opening or zooming a PDF, you always have to _scroll_ the document in order to view the content. Second, many dialogue boxes don't work. E.g. to save a document, you always have to use the "save" option since the "save as" dialoge won't be displayed. Licence dialoge: The "accept" button in the licence dialogue doesn't work. You have to modify the registry to pass over the licence dialogue (thanks to Florian Knodt!): - Read the EULA somwhere else - Start Acrobat once (some additional entries will be written to the registry) - Open wine's regedit - Go to HKCU/Software/Adobe/Adobe Acrobat/8.0/AdobeViewer - Create a new REG_DWORD named "EULA" - Set the value to 1
