Have you tried other PDF readers? Searched for Linux-based PDF indexers?
As I said in another topic, I am totally okay for free stuff (if it was
not the case, I would not be using Debian: thinking unfree but using
free is cowardice), but the fact is that I have not found a reader whose
range of compatibility with the PDF standard is as high as in acroread.
Acroread is slow, boring, sometimes buggy, but I need to use it as long
as I do not find a PDF reader which has such a big compatibility range.
Nothing says that you must only use one reader at a time. ;)
If poppler, for example, doesn't render *exactly* but searches
/rapidly/, then you could search using poppler and "read" using
Alternatively, install poppler-utils for it's pdftohtml. Certainly
it won't be perfect, but a browser might be faster than Acroread.
Dissent is patriotic, remember?
