Acroread 7 or 8

Postby rdonnelly » Sun Nov 13, 2011 7:35 pm

I have a PDF that requires Acrobat and Fileopen plug-in in order to view the file.

http://plugin.fileopen.com/all.aspx

Any one know where to get the 64 bit version of Acrobat 7 or 8?

You seek for a 64 bit version of Adobe reader? I fear, but I can be wrong, it is just bundled in 32 bit... But you should be able to make working it on 64 bit. :wink:

I can get older versions here, but the installer complains of the wrong architecture, 32 bit on 64 bit. http://www.adobe.com/support/downloads/ ... tform=unix

BTW, I thought there was a work around for installing 32 bit on 64 bit?

I have tried this 32>64bit install with no success http://shibuvarkala.blogspot.com/2010/0 ... tions.html

Code: Select all

bob@lenovo2011 ~/Downloads $ sudo dpkg -i - -force-architecture AdobeReader_enu-8.1.7-1.i386.deb
[sudo] password for bob:
dpkg: error: conflicting actions -f (--field) and -i (--install)

So you want installing the 32 package from the Adobe site? But on your 64 bit system, have you the ia32-libs installed too?

Thanks for moving it Oscar, did not realize LMDE has so many sub forums? Been away a while.

Also I do have the ia32-libs installed, I am getting the conflict with the CLI and wrong architecture if I use package installer? I would really like to run this in Linux rather then Uggh :x windoze.

Does any one know a better way to install the downloaded package through CLI?

Rather try here: http://get.adobe.com/fr/reader/otherversions/. Choose Linux, your language and Reader 9.4.2 YourLanguage for Linux (.deb)

Btw, ia32-libs is necessary but sometimes not sufficient so often ia32-libs-gtk can be needed too:

In many cases, ia32-libs-gtk is mandatory to ensure 32-bit apps would run flawlessly on Linux x86_64 .

anmys, Sudo Apt-get is going to install the latest version, and that will not work with the File Open plug in. But thanks for your input.

Any way to install Acroread 7 or 8 from a tarball manually? Will it run on my 64bit system OK?
