This is regarding the problem some users of Ubuntu 7.10 have faced with
printing of secure PDF files using Adobe Reader 8.1.1.  Here are some
links for reference on this issue: (I have posted an entry

The reason for this issue is that Ubuntu 7.10 currently installs
GhostScript version "8.61 pre-release" from the repositories, and

repositories to include this release version instead of the pre-release


I have logged the following bug to address this issue:


I don't know if this is the correct forum for this topic.  Please let me
know if I need to contact someone else who looks at the package
uploading for Ubuntu.
