Full Description

Adobe Acrobat (acroread)

Unofficial build of Adobe Acrobat 9.5.5 running within a docker container and
rendered by the local X Server.

Changelog

v1.3
* Added cups printing support. Volume mount /etc/cups/client.conf:ro + /var/run/cups:ro
  NB: You might need to modify your cupsd.conf to allow printing from the Docker bridge IP.
* Upgraded base image from Ubuntu 14.04 to Ubuntu 14.04.3

v1.2
* Optional environment variables 'ARGS' and 'FILE' can now be passed into the
  container. For example: -e ARGS='-geometry 500x500' -e FILE='/home/acroread/Documents/dockercon14_agenda-digital.pdf'

* Additional configuration files can now be mounted inside the container (see example below).
  I have included the sample config in my [GitHub](https://github.com/chrisdaish/docker-acroread/tree/master/configFiles).

v1.1
* User permissions now correlate between host and container. This allows PDF
  files to be saved back to the host system by passing in the local users
  uid/gid as environment variables.

v1.0
* Initial Release
