Ubuntu: Adobe Acrobat Reader version 10/11 & Ubuntu 14.04



Question:

I'm using Ubuntu 14.04 desktop. I have enabled the partners repo & installed Adobe Reader 9.5.5 OK. Unfortunately, I need Adobe Reader version 10 or 11 for the particular .pdf file I'm using. If anyone is interested, the .pdf file is a file supplied by UK's HMRC for Company Returns which requires certain Trust settings to be made. Can anybody tell me where I can download an appropriate (to Ubuntu 14.04) Adobe Reader 10/11 install file? PS I've tried Adobe's web site & internet searched.


Solution:1

maybe you can try to install the Adobe Reader with Wine.


the last native version was adobe reader 9, newer versions are only available for Windows and MacOS.


Solution:2

Only solution was to install Adobe Reader for Windows XP: I have Windows XP running as a VM using VirtualBox. That worked OK. Hopefully, this problem will not be there for next year's company accounts & tax return as HMRC told me that they will not be using Adobe Reader writing to a downloaded (from HMRC) CT600 pdf file but will instead be completing a CT600 form directly on their website. This is the method used for HMRC personal tax returns, which work OK.


Solution:3

You can try to open it using Adobe on Android Tablet / or mobile. I am doing this in case I would like to use some features like adding comments or highlighting. I hope this works for you.
