Are you helping a particular American company finding so-called patent violations in Ubuntu? :-)

The best option is to use is to use http://www.google.com/patents or one of the other patent search sites as they provide PDF versions of the original patents.

If you need to view USPTO images, then you can use the TIFF plugin.

The biggest problem I have with this is that the USPTO only shows one page at a time and the plugin doesn't support printing.
