Adobe Reader 9

Much against my better judgement I found the need to install Adobe Reader in order to test some stuff "off domain" for work.  (Fill in forms with drop down combo boxes)

On Waldorf 64 bit

Found the need for the following three packages (installed using gdebi in order listed):

http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian/pool/contrib/n/nspluginwrapper/nspluginwrapper_1.3.0-1_amd64.deb

http://archive.canonical.com/ubuntu/pool/partner/a/acroread/acroread-bin_9.5.5-1precise1_i386.deb

http://archive.canonical.com/ubuntu/pool/partner/a/acroread/acroread_9.5.5-1precise1_amd64.deb

These pull in a fair few other packages off the #! repos

But it works

Re: Adobe Reader 9

@Head_on_a_Stick:  What Joe90 did is probably the least risky way to use *buntu .debs in a Debian-based distro.

@Joe90:  So long as you haven't actually added any *buntu repos to your sources.list or done anything crazy like update libc6, I think you'll probably be OK.  Remember, though, "If it breaks, you get to keep the pieces."

Re: Adobe Reader 9

Note that Adobe Reader for Linux has been officially discontinued and is de facto not only deprecated, but totally obsolete software. (#)
