    Acroread aka Adobe Reader

    I'm not asking a howto question. I use acroread because I've found it works better when copying an excerpt from within column of a medical.pdf.

    Today, updates included acroread, and my Xubuntu machine now has Adobe Reader 9.5.4 (01/09/13). My w7 computers have a different build number, but apparently, Adobe has updated acroread for Ubuntu. (???)

    Dont expect adobe to give regular handouts, they pretty much dumped Linux.
    For PDF documents the in built Evince does a fair enough job, the only issue you will find is that in firefox it will open in a separate app, no big deal.

    The latest Firefox - 19.0 as of this writing - is the first to feature a built-in .pdf viewer.

    I have used evince forever, but some folks I know have had font rendering, printing and form-filling issues. I have installed the Adobe .pdf reader and these issues have been assuaged.

    Adobe's release of Adobe Reader 9.5.4 (01/09/13) and Ubuntu's update-distribution of same suggests Adobe hasn't ceased working on at least one Linux-based version of Acroread.
