For those of you that run blogs, are you ever surprised at the content that ends up being the most popular? I get surprised all the time, particularly that my previous post regarding installation of adobe reader on Ubuntu 8.04 is near the top of the list.
Well, now that 8.10 has been released and Adobe has updated the reader to 8.1.3, it seemed like a good time to update the post.
Install Adobe Reader 8.1.3
If you want the latest version of Adobe Reader you’ll need to download it from the Adobe website directly. They are nice enough to provide us with a package, so the installation is pretty quick and painless. You can head directly to the download page at the link below:
You’ll want to select “Linux” as the operating system, “Linux – x86 (.deb)” for the installer and your language. This will then provide you with a download link, which you can go ahead and “Open With..” the “GDebi Package Installer (default)”, or save to disk and double-click for auto-installation.
note: for those looking for the English version, I have a direct download link here.
You should now be able to find Adobe Reader 8 listed under Applications > Office. Enjoy.
