    Is there a Linux Equivalent to Program folder

    I installed Adobe Acrobat 8 in my Ubuntu Hardy system no problem.

    I usually can't open .pdf files with Document Viewer, so I use Adobe. Last night, I wanted to open a .pdf file attached to an e-mail message.

    The dialog box asked if I wanted to use Document Viewer as default. I clicked "No" but when I tried to browse to Adobe, I had no idea where it was.

    I hunted and pecked around for awhile then figured out I had no clue.

    I installed it from an Adobe download and I beileve it was through a .deb file. So where would I go to find the program and icon so I can associate it with .pdf files the next time such a situation presents itself?

    Thanks for any help.

    Try looking in /bin or /usr/bin for the Adobe Acrobat.

    Should be /usr/bin/acroread
