Adobe Reader doesn't use gnome-vfs so it cannot read a file from a
network filesystem such as SMB or NFS without those resources being
mounted to a directory.

If KDE file manager can open the file, the problem should be something
else and not gnome-vfs, given that KDE uses kio stuff to access
network resources and Adobe Reader doesn't use them either.

Is the samba share mounted to a directory? are you accessing it going
through "network server"?
