adobe acrobat reader or any pdf reader for tonidoplug

Postby richard42 » Fri May 21, 2010 7:54 am

The adobe acrobat only has x86 version for download. tonidoplug requires 'armel' version. Does anyone know if such a version is available for downloading?

Thanks for any info.

You mean how to read PDFs stored on your TonidoPlug from another PC? It's done through the browser on your PC. You click on a PDF stored on your TonidoPlug, your computer downloads it and then uses Adobe Reader to open it. You don't have to install anything on the plug itself.

Sorry for not making this clearer. I meant to use the tonidoplug as a ubuntu desktop via vnc. I need to view the pdf files from a gnome session. I found xpdf working but I wonder if there is an adobe 'arm' version somewhere for download.

Have you tried searching using "apt-cache search adobe"? I actually doubt there will be an ARM version though...Adobe Reader isn't open source so only Adobe can make an ARM version, Ubuntu or Tonido can't.

Try some opensource viewer, and compile it yourself if it's not in repos.
You can check list on the Wiki.
Maybe Evince or Sumatra PDF ?
