Can you give us an idea as to why you would want to do this. I don't use Fedora, but most Linux distributions come with their own PDF reader and libreoffice gives you the option of exporting to pdf. And if you don't want the default application, there will be plenty more in the repositories that you can try out till you find one that suits your needs.

Do you mean Adobe Reader---or the full Acrobat?

for reader, go here:

As stated, Linux distros typically come with a pdf reader--e.g. Evince. I don't know if Adobe has more features / capability.

I figured it out and here is how i did it.

Install Adobe Reader on Fedora 17/16, CentOS/RHEL 6.3/5.8
1. change to root

2.install Adobe YUM Repository RPM package

rpm -ivh
rpm --import /etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-adobe-linux

3. Install Adobe Reader with yum

yum install nspluginwrapper.i686 AdobeReader_enu
