Pdf reader

Hi... I am an xfce user and i need a good pdf viewer.... I can't use the viewer of kde or gnome because i haven't installed them nor their libraries.... I wish you could suggest me a pdf viewer other than the xpdf which is really awfull and useless....

Oh my god.. I need acrobat reader 6 for Linux

I'm sure you can use the gnome pdf viewer on xfce. Take a look at the gpdf website. I'm sure you can download it from there.

Any reason you haven't tried Acrobat Reader? Latest version for Linux is 5.0.9.
