    What is the best PDF Editor for Linux?

    I need to make corrections on Latex generated papers for proof reading. Earlier I used Adobe editor. That was fine. i am looking for something that can substitute it.
    I used PDFedit. It is not good. Breaks too often.

    hmm. Heard about it never used though. But is it not more of a drawing tool? I need to make corrections on Latex generated papers for proof reading. Earlier I used Adobe editor. That was fine. i am looking for something that can substitute it.

    inkscape is akin to adobe illustrator yea. its for vector art, but it has other functionality. the newest version (probably not in the repos) does offer pdf editing apparently. when i have time im gonna test it and hope to roll out a version here. adobe editor costs far too much

    How do you make corrections in a PDF file with Acrobat? Do you edit the text, oder do you make annotations?

    Annotations. There are quite a few options to put a comment with acrobat and those are really handy. I am looking for a pdf editor for Ubuntu which allows me put similar kind of comments.
