I tried your suggestion, and it still did not work. The

sudo nspluginwrapper -i /opt/Adobe/Reader9/Browser/intellinux/

did not work at all.

However, I have installed Adobe Reader for Windows via Crossover which works.

The Linux version does work okay in Linux Mint. So not sure why it still will not run in Ubuntu Studio.
