Start by logging to your server with your username and password. Start a Terminal session. Type the following command to add a new repository.

$ sudo apt-get update $ sudo apt-get install acroread

If you need to manually set Acrobat Reader as the default application for .pds
$ sudo vi /etc/gnome/defaults.list
Add or change the following lines...
