Thanks Scott. It is not the best solution, but I will set it up whenever
this error appears. Maybe this could be a flag that can be easily included
in new versions of Lyx.

pdfminorversion

2015-09-24 Thread Julio Rojas
Dear all,

I have read that in order to avoid the dreaded error 131 that Adobe Reader
shows when opening some files generated with pdfLaTeX, the
\pdfminorversion=4 flag should be added before loading Beamer. How can I do
this in Lyx?

Thanks in advance. Regards,

Hi Julio,

I have not heard about this problem. Can you give us some references?
Can you reproduce it yourself? If so, I would be very curious if you
could reproduce it with SumatraPDF. I am not suggesting you switch, I'm
just wondering if other PDF readaers suffer from the problem.
I'm also curious if there is a bug report. Does Adobe recognize there is
a problem and intend to fix it? If you find a bug report, please give
the URL.

If no one else answer with a fix for setting \pdfminorversion=4, I will
look into it.

Best,

Scott

Hi Scott,

Here you can find some references:
http://tex.stackexchange.com/questions/64448/how-to-overcome-acrobat-reader-error-131-with-a-pdflatex-doc
https://helpx.adobe.com/x-productkb/multi/error-problem-reading-document-131.html

Last reference is from Adobe itself, but the solution is somewhat cryptic
as I am using Reader DC and couldn't find those menus.

It seems that the compressed PDF will sometimes trigger this error in Adobe
Reader. I used pdftk to uncompress my file and it could be opened by
Reader. I also removed a couple of PDFs (created the same way as the
remaining in the document) and even compressed it could be opened by Reader.

I use Sumatra, thus, I didn't know of this problem until I shared some
slides with my students who used Adobe Reader. One of them used Chrome's
PDF plug-in to open it, then printed it as PDF and the problem was removed.
In Ubuntu, Ocular could open it without a hassle. I don't know if Apple's
Preview could do it.

I hope this info is enough to track the error.

Regards, Julio.

Thanks for the details and the references, Julio. This is great
information to have in case someone else experiences the problem. I took
a look at how to set /pdfminorversion=4. It seems this could be helpful:
http://tex.stackexchange.com/questions/78248/how-to-force-pdfminorversion-globally
Maybe you are hesitant to set it globally?
