    Question Tabbed PDF Reader

    Hi!

    Is there any good tabbed PDF Reader for Ubuntu 12.04?
    I can't find Acroread anymore!

    Thanks!

    Mendeley has tabs. More of a reference manager but it still has the feature.
    I'm a super power user

    Actually I had to enable canonical partner repo before! Thanks!

    sudo add-apt-repository "deb http://archive.canonical.com/ natty partner"
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install acroread

    Thing about Adobe PDF reader is it's so bloated though. Definitely not the most lightweight.

    Damn why does evince not support this feature to this day??

    Even gimp finally now has single windows mode...

    Update...

    Try qpdfview It has tab support and is lightweight.

    Here's a guide on getting foxit reader to work as well. Much better interface...

    All the best.
