I use a temporary wheezy chroot with the old AdbeRdr9.5.5-1_i386linux_enu.deb
package. It works OK for the few minutes I have to use it (this needs the
mscorefonts from contrib for me, otherwise rendering was broken on the forms
I use it on).

-- ~/bin/acroread


set -e

if [ "$1" = "-e" ]; then
    schroot -c acroread -e
    exit 0

if schroot --all-sessions -l | grep -q session:acroread; then
    schroot --begin-session -n acroread -c wheezy-i386
    schroot --run-session -c acroread -u root -- sh -c "echo deb http://localhost:3142/debian/ unstable contrib > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/contrib.list && apt-get update"
    schroot --run-session -c acroread -u root -- sh -c  "apt-get install -y --no-install-recommends cups-bsd gnome-themes-standard gtk2-engines libgtk2.0-0 ttf-mscorefonts-installer && dpkg --force-depends -i /home/jak/Downloads/AdbeRdr9.5.5-1_i386linux_enu.deb"

schroot --run-session -c acroread env DISPLAY=$DISPLAY -- /usr/bin/acroread "$@"
