Installing Adobe Reader 9.1 in Ubuntu

There is a lot of PDF Readers on Linux. Unlike the Windows, after the Ubuntu installation, we can preview them easily and comfortable without installing anything. Sometimes, however, they are people used to use programs known to them from other platforms. Now I will show you how to install the latest version of Adobe Reader 9.1.

At the beginning I have to mention that Adobe Reader is not open source application. To be able to use it, we are forced to accept the license. Rather, this should not deter anyone from using this program.

Installation


The easiest way is to download the DEB file for Ubuntu. The only drawback to this is that we will have to download a few megabytes, for example, more than the .Bin, but sometimes causes problems with the installation. If you prefer this type of installation, go to this page and select a package .Deb and language.

For convenience, you can do all this without leaving the console.
1) Open the console and download the installation file (about 60MB):

wget http://ardownload.adobe.com/pub/adobe/reader/unix/9.x/9.1/enu/AdbeRdr9.1.0-1_i386linux_enu.deb
2) And at the end of install type:
dpkg-i AdbeRdr9.1.0-1_i386linux_enu.deb

The latest version improved is the window to print and added features tabbed browsing files in the same way as it has recently in Nautilus or web browsers.
