    Acroread7


    Hello,

    I'm running FreeBSD6.2 without KDE or gome. I'm trying to use acroread to modify files from a script. However whenever I call the program I'm given this error.

    Code:
    (acroread:2791): Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display:
    Is there anyway around this?
    Thanks

    You could use a perl module which does not need a GUI to work, instead of acroread. For instance: http://search.cpan.org/search?query=PDF&mode=all
