What works

Installed and printed different types of documents. Opens images and prints them to .pdf. Prints text files and html files.

Created links within documents, annotations, and notes.

Can drag and drop html document directly into acrobat. Can drag and drop .txt into acrobat. Can drag and drop .jpg and .png into acrobat

Can select text and copy to clipboard

Acrobat can scan documents within program (i.e. Wine). Had to assign a usb port to a drive. In my case Drive letter A:/dev/bus/usb/004:007/

Additional Comments

Got it to install under wine first time after choosing custom install. Uncheck paper capture options. Paper capture will install after installing directx 9.0c Got it to install with no problems the second time. NOTE!!!! Installed XP in virtual box and copied entire System32 directory to Wine System 32 directory and got all the plugins to load. i.e. no error messages. I am using Mint14 linux version.
