Packege he donwloaded, apparently does not have configure. If it doesn't then it MUST contain 2 more packages in tar format "read.tar" and "ininxr.tar" check them before running script

Personally, I would simply open the INSTALL file in a text editor - that normally contains the instructions for installing,rather than being the installer.

Moved: This thread is more suitable in Linux-Newbie and has been moved accordingly to help your thread/question get the exposure it deserves.

I don't think that Acrobat uses standard configure;make;make install procedure. Instead there should be a README file with installation instruction. The version I have has INSTALL script, too. It can exit with the error you get when there's no LINUXRDR.TAR file in the same directory as the script. The file is included into the archive. Please list files you have after unpacking Acrobat archive (use 'ls' command).
