I need to download and work on a document that required Adobe Acrobat Reader 9 but as far as I understand it isn't available on Linux. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks

I do a lot of PDF editing on my other machines (such as highlighting text and adding notes). i can not find pdfeditor in ubuntu.

is pdfeditor as powerful as acrobat 9 pro? is there a linux equivalent of acrobat?

i searched for pdfeditor in add/remove programs and in synoptic package manager... but could not find it. Can you point me in the direction to find pdfeditor.

I have these installed and the particular PDF I am trying to download still tells me that I need to update Adobe to version 9.

Any ideas?

Did this but being told it's already installed. Yet I'm still unable to download the PDF I want.

Try to go to Application -> Ubuntu Software Center.

Search for Adobe Reader 9, and click "More Info" and install it.

It works in my case. :)
