this is a mesage i sent to sourceforge,net a few minutes ago, and do not want anyone to get caught in this trap, like me.

i am still trying to get my money back from Acrobats support/rip off site. Seems like no one there wants to listen, just get your money and go. does anyone know how to get unload a .zip file?, in ubuntu or linux? that is the only i will get to use/see these routines i guess. any help will do.

thanks, len tyree.




The advertisement for 'free Acrobat download' (2 of them) is a lie. It
is not free! Once a person starts to fill out the info to get the
product, they will start asking which price, plan, you wish to purchase.
If you continue on, as I did, they will take your credit card, charge
you for the product, add on 2 more items that you may not want or need,
then you can download.
Also, I am a Linux user, and the items I received to download will not
open in my system. There is nothing saying which system the download is
for, or you are not given a choice to choose from.

This ad should be removed or the advertisers made to provide truthful
details. I have been arguing for 2 days with their collection/support??
site software@technicalcontact.com.

I am now going to inform the people associated with the 'Linux and
Ubuntu' forums.

Thank you, Len Tyree, ltyree@tttmaxnet.com

I'm sorry to say but how on earth did you fall for this scam? I honestly think you have yourself to blame.

Just rigt-click on the zip file, it should extract easily. You an also make zip files in Ubuntu.

I don't mean to offend, but what kind of experience is this? Why would you need a free Acrobat download, it's free on the Adobe site anyway. Not to mention the fact that you're on Ubuntu, which opens pdfs with preinstalled software.

This doesn't make any sense.

I would like to ask the same thing.

It can be easily installed for free in Ubuntu since it is offered by the Medibuntu repository (http://packages.medibuntu.org/hardy/acroread.html).

I've only been using Kubuntu for barely a week, and even I knew that! Sheesh!

*rolls eyes*I've been using Linux for several years and I didn't know that. Don't assume that just because you know something means that everyone knows it.

Let's keep it civil please.

Google can be your best friend. An example. I use it a lot.

http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&ned=us&q=ubuntu+pdf+files&btnmeta%3Dsearch%3Dsearch=Search+the+Web

You can also search the Ubuntu forums. Many people do not think of searching for answers. With a little looking around, you can usually find answers that will not cost you money.
