  sudo ln -s /usr/local/Adobe/Acrobat7.0/bin/acroread acroread 

I installed it by converting the rpm to a deb with alien.  It created 
/usr/bin/acroread, but that was a file of zero length!  Replacing it 
with a symlink worked, of course.

When I start acroread, I get an error that the PPKlite.api plugin failed 
to initialize, but otherwise it appears to work fine.
