Install Adobe Acrobat

18 January 2007 To view PDF files, Fedora includes evince, however this application is very basic and may not work will all PDF’s.
Download Acrobat from:
Operating system: Unix/Linux
Version: Linux (.rpm)
Your language.
The current version of Adobe Acrobat is 7.0.9 and download size is between 42-60MB depending on your language. (Not all languages are supported under Linux).
[mirandam@charon downloads]$ sudo rpm -ivh AdobeReader_enu-7.0.9-1.i386.rpm
NOTE: There is a problem with v7.0.9 (and v7.0.8) that will prevent Acrobat from working in FC6.
To fix, edit as root:
[mirandam@charon ~]$ sudo gedit /usr/local/Adobe/Acrobat7.0/bin/acroread
Make the following changes:
Line ~418:
   echo $mfile| sed 's/libgtk-x11-\([0-9]*\)\([0-9]\)00.\([0-9]*\)\|\(.*\)/\1\2\3/g'
   echo $mfile| sed 's/libgtk-x11-\([0-9]*\)\([0-9]*\)00.\([0-9]*\)\|\(.*\)/\1\2\3/g'

Line ~643:
More information:
Patch: As proposed on the fedora-list there is a quick solution with this: acroread.patch. This should do the same steps as above. Warning: This patch is only known to work for versions 7.0.8 and 7.0.9.
[mirandam@charon ~]$ wget -O /tmp/acroread.patch
[mirandam@charon ~]$ cd /usr/local/Adobe/Acrobat7.0/bin
[mirandam@charon bin]$ sudo cp acroread acroread.orig
[mirandam@charon bin]$ sudo patch < /tmp/acroread.patch
