You don't have to install anything to read PDF files on Ubuntu or any other Linux that I know of.

Download a PDF and double click it to open it. You'll be pleasantly surprised.

From the tutorial I found: http://ubuntu-tutorials.com/2008/06/23/install-adobe-acrobat-reader-812-on-ubuntu-804/

Go to terminal and type:


Code:


sudo wget http://www.medibuntu.org/sources.list.d/hardy.list -O /etc/apt/sources.list.d/medibuntu.list
Once that is done you’ll likely want to add the Medibuntu GPG key as well:



sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install medibuntu-keyring && sudo apt-get update
Then once that is also done, install Adobe Reader by typing:



sudo apt-get install acroread


Edit: If you want Adobe Reader.

Why are you pissed if 10.04 has been out for almost a month and you chose 8.04 instead?

...and it should have native PDF support!

I think like the next version of Ubuntu has it in the add/remove programs menu option, if I'm not mistaken, it has adobe reader and flash as well.

Have you tried Evince for viewing pdfs? I thought it was installed by default.
