Thread: Acrobat reader in Opensuse 11.2

    Default Acrobat reader in Opensuse 11.2

    There's only the english version of Acrobat reader available in the non-oss repository. Anybody knows where I can find other languages?

    I know it's available from Adobe's site but it's not packaged as a rpm (it's a bin file).

    Click on the link on Adobe's site to get other versions:

    http://get.adobe.com/reader/otherversions/

    Good luck.

    Alternatively try Okular if you are using KDE; there is also a Gnome PDF reader.

    You can easily download the BIN file of your choice from Adobe's site and the install it using these instructions:

    Download the BIN file and save it to a convenient location. Then open a terminal and cd to the directory where you saved the file. Then type:
    Code:
    chmod a+x FILENAME.bin
    where FILENAME is the name of the BIN file. We have to give this command to give executable permissions to the file. After that type:

    Code:
    ./FILENAME
    where FILENAME is the name of the file. This command will execute it and run the program.

    Hope this helps.

    Or to save on steps just run it directly:

    sh ./FILENAME.bin

    Good luck.

    I found Okular to be more light weight.

    Thanks guys for the info but as I said in my post, I want to install Acrobat in french (Evince is buggy on some pdf files so I also need Acrobat). I'm well aware I can install it with the bin file from Adobe's site, however it's not installed in a standard (Suse) way, it doesn't provide Firefox's plugin and I will have to check manually for new releases.

    So, since I can grab the english rpm version from the repo, I think it would be nice if other languages were available as well...
