    +1 for PDF X-Change Viewer. It's powerful, it look great, and is not bloatware (...Adobe Reader...). Only 20MB, reasonnable for a PDF Reader.
    I personnally try to stick with native Ubuntu software, so I use Evince, but I always leave PDF X-Change Viewer installed in Wine. Evince sometimes does not display my PDF properly.

    No need to run a wine program. Xournal does the same.

    You can now update libreoffice in Ubuntu 12.04, 12.10, and 13.04 just look here <http://www.ubuntukiller.com/2013/04/...o-install.html>. Add the repo, check for update, and install the dist-upgrade. This gives you LibreOffice 4.0 and can open PDF files in LibreOffice Draw. I just used it to enlarge and move around about 80 photos that were on a PDF doc.

    also there is portable Master pdf editor" free for non commercial use;

    I do not see any way in Xournal to annotate a pdf as one can do in Acrobat Pro or pdf-Xchange, that is, highlighting text, striking out, inserting sticky notes, etc., in such a way that the annotations can be exported and sent separately from the original pdf.

    Master PDF Editor is nice, though. I may start using it instead of pdf-Xchange, which I have used under Wine for years.

    I didn't know about either of these things. I'm so glad I read this thread. Thank you to Oboedad55 and Wittyman37.

    Two years later....

    It is now possible to install Adobe Reader (8) on a 64bit Linux computer (Debian Wheezy) (Ubuntu7) WITH the FileOpen plugin.

    wiki.debian.org/Multiarch/HOWTO... shows you how to run 32bit apps on your 64bit machine

    www,apphit.com/Download_Adobe_Reader-27/8_0-161.htm... has Adobe Reader 8 available for download

    ~and~

    plugin.fileopen.com/all.aspx... has the FileOpen plugin.

    All thanks to Linux and no thanks to Adobe or FileOpen of course.
