a good pdf view similar to acrobat?


hi,

is there a good pdf viewer for redhat 9.0 that offers similar features from adobe acrobat. the free adobe acrobat for linux in the adobe website does not really install in redhat 9.0. in short... it does not work!

is there any other pdf viewer similar to acrobat?

how about xpdf? I love it. Much lighter than acrobat reader and once u muster the keyboard ( nothing hard), its a breeze to use. Its usually in the default installation, but then i dont use RH. Try it out!

what i do not like about xpdf is that there are no navigations and i cannot view the pages smoothly (just like in acrobat's continuous page option)

You say that the free version from adobe didn't install. If that is version 5, then you might want to try version 4. It's available here:

Let us know if this works.

Enjoy!

acrobat does install in rh9
i had this problen as well since it wouldnt work
what you have to do is before running acrobat, type in your terminal LANG=C
then start the program from the terminal
now im not an expert or anything so dont ask me why and how it works
i just read it somewhere
