See related bug 151077. Perhaps you can kill several birds with one stone by mentioning on this master page that the plugins directory is ~/.mozilla/plugins and not /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins The summary for Acrobat mentions to: "2. Copy nppdf.so to your Mozilla plugins directory." First off, this file should be softlinked as is mentioned for the .so file in the java plugin instructions and not copied.... shame shame shame. Must be an ex-windows user ;-) Once again, if the softlink is made in /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins, no worky. Must be put into your local ~/.mozilla/plugins folder if it is to take effect. Finally two more minor nits: The link to download the acrobat reader is for 5.05 whilst the text reads for a V4 install: "With a default installation of Acrobat Reader, this file is in /usr/local/Acrobat4/Browsers/intellinux/". Also you might want to helpfully note that users who download and attempt to install this player will need to have "good ole" ed installed in their packages. Ed isn't installed anymore by default in most (all?) popular redhat distro's and is billed as an obsolete thing that "you really don't need" instead. This bit me in the ass once before when I was working at the CM company formerly known as http://www.continuus.com ;-)
