    installation probs on graphic driver and adobe

    I am still very new so go easy on me I am a hard time installing the graphic driver and adobe reader. they seem related. Adobe gives me the option to run in terminal or just run it. When hit run I get a window that states it is opening the installer, and that is it. It has just hung there for about 15 minutes now. Then for the nividia driver I get prompted to open it with a differnent aplication I just have no clue as to which one I should use. my current install is 8.06

    Im guessing you are trying to use the installers from the companies websites.

    For the nvidia driver at least this isn't necessary and not recommended.

    This contains info on how to install acrobat reader, probably easiest to use the mediabbuntu repo

    I keep getting an error no such file or directory at ther terminal. I do not see the package in synaptic. I would use the default reader but it cannot open password protected docs
