    Alternative to 64-bit Adobe REader

    Apologies if this seems like a question with an obvious answer - just remember I'm slow witted....


    It has taken me a while to realise that there is no version of Adobe Reader for 64-bit KK Ubuntu. What should I be using instead? What potential issues might there be with using it in Kubuntu?

    You can run the 32-bit version of Acrobat reader in 64-bit Ubuntu, if you like. http://www.ubuntugeek.com/install-ac...10-karmic.html
