Or, you could just install Acrobat Reader from Adobe. ;)
Grab the AdobeReader_enu-7.0.8-1.i386.tar.gz file, then
"tar xzfv AdobeReader_enu-7.0.8-1.i386.tar.gz" which will
create a directory called AbobeReader. So, "cd AdobeReader"
and "sudo ./INSTALL".
This will install everything to /usr/local/Adobe/. So, all that's left
is to add it to your menu via "System Settings > Panel > Menus tab >
Edit K Menu." (the actual acroread program is in /usr/local/Adobe/bin)
Sounds complicated, but it only takes a few minutes if you're familiar
with adding stuff to the menu.
