Re: Coolkey and Adobe Reader

Doing a little cleaning up of my inbox and found this.  I just wanted to follow up quick to note that it works with the current version of Adobe Reader, 8.1.1, on Linux.

If you're trying to set it up for DoD CAC, Timothy Miller posted instructions on Apple's fed-talk list (obviously on Linux you'd use the path to the coolkey .so, rather than Apple's pkcs11 bundle):

If you set the following environment variable, Coolkey will create a log file:

If you set the environment variable to SYSLOG, coolkey will log to 
the syslog, otherwise coolkey will take the value as a path and try 
to open a log file with that path.

You can at least see if adobe is successfully loading and calling coolkey.
