Adobe Acrobat is not available under Linux or Unix. After version 6, no version of Adobe Acrobat for Linux or Unix was released.

Even Adobe Reader, the PDF viewer, stopped at version 9 and recent versions (version X, version XI) are not available for download in Linux.

Qoppa’s PDF Studio is a great alternative for Adobe Acrobat on Linux /Unix (Ubuntu, Suse, Solaris, Fedora, AIX and others) and is offered at  one third of the price!
