Install Adobe Acrobat Plugins For Firefox

By | 2008/06/25

I recently blogged about installing the Adobe Acrobat Reader on Ubuntu 8.04.  For those that followed that tutorial you may also be interested in adding the Firefox plugins for Adobe Reader as well.  These will also require the Medibuntu repository, which I’ll review quickly here.

Configuring the Medibuntu Repository

sudo wget http://www.medibuntu.org/sources.list.d/hardy.list -O /etc/apt/sources.list.d/medibuntu.list

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install medibuntu-keyring && sudo apt-get update

Installing the Mozilla Acroread Plugins

sudo apt-get install mozilla-acroread acroread-plugins

The acroread-plugins package will provide support for completion of fillable forms and javascript.  The mozilla-acroread package will provide support for mozilla, firefox, galeon and konqueror.

Enjoy!

    Thanks for all your help getting Adobe up and running for me, I just had one problem. Is it possible to make Adobe 8 the default program for opening PDF files? When I try to select it from a list of programs, Adobe is not one of them. Let me know if this is possible, either way I am just glad it is working.

    Thanks again
