adobe reader upgrade error using apt-get & ubuntu


The following is the result of running sudo apt-get dist-upgrade with Ubuntu Dapper.

I am new to this fasinating thing called Linux but am figuring it out as I go. I need Adobe Reader capabilities which are beyond the scope of the document viewer installed as a default.

I downloaded a .rpm package of Adobe, ran it thru Alien to get a .deb. Installed it and got the PPKLite.api error. Fixed that by deleting PPKLite.api. Now, the following is the result of trying to make sure Adobe works properly and will update, when needed.

Setting up adobereader-enu (7.0.8-1) ...
ln: creating symbolic link `/Reader/intellinux/lib/libldap.so' to `/usr/lib/libl dap.so.2': No such file or directory
ln: creating symbolic link `/Reader/intellinux/lib/liblber.so' to `/usr/lib/libl ber.so.2': No such file or directory
ln: creating symbolic link `/Reader/intellinux/lib/libORBit-2.so' to `/usr/lib/l ibORBit-2.so.0': No such file or directory
ln: creating symbolic link `/Reader/intellinux/lib/libbonobo-2.so' to `/usr/lib/ libbonobo-2.so.0': No such file or directory
ln: creating symbolic link `/Reader/intellinux/lib/libbonobo-activation.so' to ` /usr/lib/libbonobo-activation.so.4': No such file or directory
ln: creating symbolic link `/Reader/intellinux/lib/libgnomespeech.so' to `/usr/l ib/libgnomespeech.so.7': No such file or directory
dpkg: error processing adobereader-enu (--configure):
subprocess post-installation script returned error exit status 1
Errors were encountered while processing:
adobereader-enu

If I read this dialog correctly, I am missing some lib* files. Any assistance is appreciated.

BTW, I tried SuSE 7.0, 10.0 and 10.1 before trying Ubuntu. Ease of installation, setup and manual configuration are much better, IMHO. Speed is better, also. There are a few things I think should/could be easier for the newly initiated, such as myself, but I am learning.
