Well, currently i'm using the adobe acrobat for linux (5.0.10)
But who uses it knows its GUI interface sux and no wheel mouse support.

So im looking for a good pedf viewer in Linux.
What pdf viewer do you use?

I use kghostview or kpdf. Adobe have also released a beta of Acrobat Reader 7, which in my opinion is one of their best releases ever, but unfortunately you can't get it from the adobe site now, you gotta get it through other means. It's written in gtk, so it should fit in nicely with GNOME or XFCE.
