Your question is not a question, it is technically a statement.

Have you performed a web search?

Do you have Linux running?

Please refer to the LQ Welcome Page for more information about how to pose questions on the forum.

Great; so please feel free to go and download it from Adobe's website. We are happy to help with technical issues, but please don't ask us to look up web links for you.

There are many native Linux PDF readers that work quite nicely, generally with out the bloat of Acrobat Reader. My preferred PDF reader is Okular.

You should have one installed. It depends on what distro you are using, which is why most of us display that information. Look in the menu for PDF Reader or Document Reader, under Accessories or Office.

Adobe hasn't updated Acrobat for linux for years but I still use it. Sometimes I use xpdf.
