How to natively install Adobe Reader in Ubuntu 16.04?

by Homero Barrocas S Esmeraldo   Last Updated January 15, 2018 21:02 PM

I downloaded this .deb file recommended in the answers to this question. The icon appeared in my Applications search, but when I click it, nothing happens. If I right-click it, and then click in "Show details" I get a Software window saying "Could not find 'AdobeReader.desktop'.

I also have nothing as output when I run $which adobereader-enu.

Does this really work or am I doing something wrong?

EDIT: I have just found out that this answer to that questions suggests running sudo apt install libxml2:i386. It solved for me.

I have just found out that [this][3] answer to that same question suggests running sudo apt install libxml2:i386. This solved for me.

But I ended up uninstalling it because there were no commenting and highlighting features.
