When I open the manuals index with Adobe Reader, Maestro crashes. Some of the other options such as the Python Module Overview and Python API links don't function. Is there anything I can do about it?

The problem with Adobe Reader is a known issue with the 64-bit version. In the past, Reader 8.0 did not work on 64-bit Linux at all, but now it seems that certain combinations are working, e.g., Reader 8.1.2 on 64-bit CentOS 5.2 works just fine.

If you have Adobe Reader 7, you can set the environment variable SCHRODINGER_PDF_VIEWER to point to it. This way you still have a newer version for regular use while forcing Maestro to use Reader 7 to search through manuals. Otherwise you should try installing a newer version of Reader.

The same can be considered for Python links from Help; if they are not opening in the default browser (e.g., Firefox) for some reason, you can set the SCHRODINGER_HELP_BROWSER environment variable to point to Konqueror, for example, to see if it makes a difference.
