Lost Acrobat Reader


The Acrobat reader in my Mandriva 2008 distro suddenly quit working. I'm not familiar enough yet with the command line to get it operational again. It is still in the install directory, where ever that is. Can someone tell me the command line setup to get it working again?
Thx

I'm sorry - I don't know how to call Acrobat Reader. But you could try using "evince" instead of AR.

Linked but still lost

Thanks folks. I did get it to the desktop and can open it from there. Now another question. When you go to a website that has a .pdf file to view how can I get it to open automatically after download??

do a google search of "filetype:pdf" and you will basically come up with every pdf file on the web.
