What works

Everything appears to work

What does not

Installation is a mess, as seen from the other comments, though I had a slightly different problem come up.

After following the advice here about starting a 32-bit wine prefix, using winetricks adobe_diged4.

However, the application would crash complaining about not being able to find libpng12.so.0


Workarounds

I found that I had to manually download and install the 32 bit version of libpng12.0 ubuntu library like so:

$ wget http://se.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/libp/libpng/libpng12-0_1.2.54-1ubuntu1_i386.deb
$ dpkg -i libpng12-0_1.2.54-1ubuntu1_i386.deb

The application then loaded perfectly.

What was not tested

Not much tested in the reader.
