How to activate PDF reader?


I have installed Adobe Acrobat 4.05 on my Linux RedHat 7.0.

How do I get the Acrobat Reader to read my PDF files?

Re: How to activate PDF reader?

After installing, do the following :
# ln -s /usr/local/Acrobat4/bin/acroread /usr/bin

and :

# ln -s /usr/local/Acrobat4/Browsers/intellinux/ /usr/lib/netscape/plugins

Restart Netscape, or go to Help>About Plugins to check about it.
or launch Acrobat as follow :
$ acroread mypdffile.pdf
