I recently blogged about installing the Adobe Acrobat Reader on Ubuntu 8.04. For those that followed that tutorial you may also be interested in adding the Firefox plugins for Adobe Reader as well. These will also require the Medibuntu repository, which I’ll review quickly here.
I figured it was time to update my previous posts on how to install Adobe Acrobat Reader for Ubuntu 8.04. It has become much simpler to install than it has been in the past, meaning it can be installed via a proper .deb package. It is not available in the main Ubuntu repositories, but it is available in Medibuntu.
It was recently pointed out to me on one of our local mailing lists that my previous tutorial on installing Adobe’s Acrobat reader for Firefox no longer worked. It seems that those packages have been pulled from the repository since that writing. I wanted to take a few minutes and give an update on a different method of installing Adobe’s Acrobat reader.
