Hi Robin,

I can't get Acrobat Reader 9 on Linux (Ubuntu 8.10) to convert the 'Some
text in Arial Unicode MS' PDF to Postscript using "acroread
-toPostScript <my_pdf_file>" - it just displays the filename followed by
a colon, with no error message, and generates no postscript file. The
same command on a completely different PDF generated a PostScript file
as expected.

Do you have a copy of Acrobat Reader on Linux that you can check this
