    Installing Adobe Acrobat Reader from the Adobe website can be a bit daunting … how do I install a .BIN file?
    Well, you really don’t need to go the Adobe website to get Adobe Acrobat Reader.

    Open a shell window and type:

    sudo add-apt-repository "deb precise partner"
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install acroread

    This will use apt-get to download and install Adobe Acrobat Reader for Linux.

    If you however decide to use the .BIN file anyway:

    chmod +x AdbeRdrxxxx_i486linux_enu.bin 
    sudo ./AdbeRdrxxxx_i486linux_enu.bin 

    For 64 bit systems you might need to install 32 bit libraries as follows:

    apt-get install ia32-libs
