I'm running Adobe Reader 9.5.4 01/09/2013 on my Ubuntu 14.04 with no problems. I wasn't aware that there was a different version number.

Why do you unpack a <package.deb> ? ?
Only required if you for some reason want to inspect / repack files.


HOWTO, AdbeRdr9.5.5-1_i386linux_enu.deb

adobe reader installation

Hello Knudfl, I followed the instructions on another website - how to install Adobe Reader in Ubuntu 14.10, where it advised to got to handbook utopic to add a repository - r deb http archive canonical. com /precise partner. this also recommand to uninstall the repository after successfull installation. Guess have to uninstall this repository in terminal before following your advice ?
many thanks,

Would be better to remove - if not in use, but not really relevant.

I guess the default "Ubuntu pdf reader" is still 'evince' :

$ sudo apt-get install evince

... Please try if you can get a print out with evince.
