    1. This doesn’t work for me on Fedora 29. I get cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory I have been unable to figure out how to resolve this issue.

    2. This is Awesome!

      Worked perfectly on Fedora 29.

      Thank you. I have just added the configuration of Firefox to make my life even easier by doing:

      #### On Firefox:
      -> then find for pdf
      Portable Document Format PDF -> “Then here I have changed to Use Adobe Reader”

      All sorted!

      Thank you!!

    3. This was wonderful — easy to use.

      I have a longstanding problem with non-embedded fonts for acroread on linux (I use fedora). Is there a mindless way to install all the fonts acroread could possible ever need?

    4. Does anyone know how to install so AdobeReader will install on CentOS 7?

      .rpm file is already downloaded.

    5. Thanks. I followed your steps on a Fedora Core 29 machine and got this message when trying to run acroread:

      /opt/Adobe/Reader9/Reader/intellinux/bin/acroread: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

      which I solved via an additional command:

      sudo dnf install gdk-pixbuf2-xlib.i686

    6. worked flawlessly with the provided commands on fedora 29.
      thanks ;-)

    7. Still working on Fedora 29 — thanks!

    8. On recently installed Fedora 30 with Mate-Compiz desktop.
      When I start AdobeReader with the command acroread I get this response 15 times as it starts-

      dnf install libcanberra-gtk2.i686 adwaita-gtk2-theme.i686 PackageKit-gtk3-module.i686

    9. Does not work on Fedora 30. Installing dependencies get:

      Error: Transaction check error:
      file /usr/share/xml/fontconfig/fonts.dtd from install of fontconfig-2.13.1-8.fc30.i686 conflicts with file from package fontconfig-2.13.1-6.fc30.x86_64

      • Hi Brian,

        Thanks, I have to check this.
