OK. Figured it out. On one box I linked /opt/Acrobat7.0/bin/acroread
into /usr/local/bin and on the other into /opt/bin (I had added /opt/bin
to the PATH variable in /etc/profile). That is what was causing the
problem. I did some google searching and found that /etc/login.defs
gets read in before the login process starts. So I updated ENV_PATH and
ENV_SUPATH in /etc/login.defs to contain /opt/bin. I then rebooted the
machine (it's a laptop and never gets much uptime anyway) just to be
sure. However, this did not do it.
Where the heck does /opt come in to the picture? Is that where
you want to store non-dpkg-managed binaries?
Its what red-hat uses by default for self compiled and non-packaged binaries
(possibly others, not sure). Debian prefers/usr/local/, thus no /opt by default
Are you sure about that story ?
Recently I installed Sarge on a Desktop:
there was a /opt directory.
Anyhow I have linked it to
as my /usr/local
is mounted on its own partition.
Furthermore, I think that a lot of people do that.
Yeah. /usr/local for self-compiled and/or customized free software
packages. /opt for non-free stuff (Acrobat, icc, etc).
