You need to copy the file named nppdf.so
from the where you installed Acrobat to the plugins
directory of Firefox or Seamonkey or whatever other browser you're using. Do the copy as root into the system-wide plugins
directory (which may be /usr/lib/firefox/plugins
or something similar) so any logged-in use will have access to it. You can find the plugins
directory with the find command; e.g.,
find /usr -follow -name 'plugins'
Obviously, you're looking for the Firefox (or whatever) tree.
In my case, the file is in /opt/Adobe/Reader8/Browser/intellinux/nppdf.so
. If you don't have Adobe Reader 8 installed (say, you've got 7), the file will be in roughly the same file tree and will be named nppdf.so
You also need to add the path to the acroread
program to the system or user PATH if acroread
is not symbolically linked to /usr/bin
or somewhere (if you can execute acroread
on the command line you don't need to do this).
