- What do you mean by "open"?
  - start a PDF viewer (e.g acrobar reader) from python?
  - or read in the file in Python and extract information from it?

- What platform are you on?
  - Windows
  - Linux/Unix
  - MAC OS

- What kind of PDFs do you have?
  - only Text
  - with images
  - or forms?
  - with encryption?
  - What versions of the PDF document format ?

You have to be a little more specific, please, if you want us to help you!
