archlinux - Acrobat Reader

Posted on Fri 13 January 2012 in Linux • 1 min read

Sometimes its necessary/pleasanter to use the Acrobat Reader for some PDF files like forms...

Enable the multilib repository

# cat /etc/pacman.conf
Include = /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist
# pacman -Sy

Install necessary packages

# pacman -S lib32-libxml2 lib32-gtk2 lib32-gdk-pixbuf2

Maybe there are some more packages still missing on your system!

Download and install Acrobat Reader

# wget
# chmod +x AdbeRdr9.4.2-1_i486linux_deu.bin
# ./AdbeRdr9.4.2-1_i486linux_deu.bin

Or you can use the PKGBUILD file from the AUR repository.
