On the contrary. Here's the sources.list entry:
deb http://www.debian-multimedia.org $BRANCH main
# apt-get update
# apt-get install debian-multimedia-keyring
# apt-get install acroread
OK, I did all this. It worked OK but it didn't install acroread.... So
then I seached the web and it seemed to say that maybe there isn't a version
of acroread for and AMD64 box (which I am using).
There is some chroot trick that can get the i386 deb file to work.
Perhaps the tarball had no chance after all.
But maybe I still have to little faith and I have been reading old web pages
and there IS an amd64 acroread deb file after all....
