First if you haven't done so, enable the medibuntu repository. Now,
what version are you running? Hardy or Intrepid?

I'm using
as a reference.

So it's for hardy, but substitute intrepid if you're using that.

First of all, add the medibuntu repository. This is for programs that
can't be included in the main ubuntu tree.

$ sudo wget -O

Next, add the medibuntu key ring - that is for security purposes:

$ sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install medibuntu-keyring &&
sudo apt-get update

Now you can install acroread:

sudo apt-get install acroread
