Acrobat PDF: error reading linearized hint data
I came accross this Error when I uploaded the PDF file on my website and tried to open it through my web browser
when I opened the same PDF file which was on my hard disk it opened without any Error
After searching on google I found solution or you may say workaround for this issue
Open Acrobat Reader
Open the menu Edit/Preferences/General/Options.
Disable the entry: "Allow fast web view."
Save the changes
Now after following above steps if you try to open the file through web browser it opens without any Error Though this solution is fine for those who are getting the error for files which are stored on their Hard disk
But in my case its not advisible to tell people to do the above steps to there Acrobat Reader and then open the files from the website to view them
So to over come this issue specially with PDF files what I would suggest is instead of allowing browsers to open the PDF file in the Acrobat Reader force the user to download it on there machines first.
