An older version not seen too often, works well under wine.
I have done a full installation. The installation went smoothly (one error, but went through it and installed fine). After installation, you will need to do the following to get it to run:
Delete the DocBox.api from the acrobat plugin directory:
For me, it appears to do most of what I need it to do: Open PDF, Annotate PDF, SAVE PDF, etc...
What does not
So far, doesn't appear to create new PDFs using PDF Document Writer, which is a printer driver simulator for windows. Not sure how to set those things up under wine
What was not tested
Have not played with Distiller, but it may work fine. Loads... but that is all I have done with it.
