Acroread (the reader) can be installed in different places.

- /usr/local/Acrobat5/bin/acroread
- /usr/bin/acroread
- /usr/X11R6/bin/acroread

First find where the binary actually is located.
If you have locate installed, use that (after updating).

As root:
$ updatedb
When ready:
$ locate acroread
You should get at least one hit.

If you do not have locate installed, use find:

$ find / -name acroread | grep bin
Again, you should get at least 1 hit.

Now you know where the acroread binary is located.

You do not mention which window manager you are using, so I cannot tell you how to create a button/link for your specific WM (chances are that I'm not using the one you choose. I'm using xfce/blackbox).

Hope this gets you going again.

will helpfully locate any commands for you as well
