problem with slackware64
i try to use adobe reader i486 on slackware64,but

tinnnysu@tinnnysu:~$ acroread
dirname: missing operand
Try 'dirname --help' for more information.
/usr/bin/acroread: line 22: /opt/Adobe/Reader9/Reader/intellinux/bin/acroread: No such file or directory

some other software also like this,quartus ii etc.

Hello :)

Have you installed the multilib (

In order to run 32 bit software on Slackware64 it is necessary to install Alien Bob's multilib packages,

If you follow his instructions you shouldn't have any problems.

Adobe Acrobat Reader is already deprecated out with xPDF and Ocular. The Adobe Acrobat Reader for Linux hasn't been updated since 9.5.1 and the latest official build is 10.1.4 and no plans have been made to update it from this version or create a version for X64 platforms.

I agree with ReaperX7, Okular is very good. But if one hasn't installed KDE, Okular will not run properly (one can install okular without KDE, but here it doesn't open PDF-files). I'd recommend to take a look at evince which is available via and has minimal dependencies.

Another option that I've been happy is Epdfview also from SlackBuilds.
