School Password Protected PDF's do not open with evince

Asked by Trista on 2012-03-04

Hi, I am needing to find a program or add-on to the PDF reader that comes with Ubuntu 11.10. I can type my username and password into the PDF file, but when I click on unlock, it does not open the file. I have tried loading virtualbox with windows XP to try and open them, but currently virtualbox does not give me access to my file system so I can access those files. I have tried a few of the PDF readers in the Ubuntu software store, but all of them seem to hang, and don't allow me to read them. I am deffiniteley not looking for a hack or crack as I don't want to get kicked out of school just because I can't open the files... Are there any downloadable or online programs that you know of that can help me with this?
