Thanks NoOp for pointing out Adobe now has acroread in the Canonical
Partner repositories

I have traditionally gotten it thru medibuntu, but considering the
number of security issues with
it lately, one step closer to the source is welcome, and you get
version 9.1 rather than 8.1 to boot.

I thought it was worth reposting on it's own thread.
