just tried to install Adobe Reader 7 from their web site

but got errors when running Alien
mkb@amd64:~/src$ sudo alien --scripts AdobeReader_enu-8.1.2-1.i486.rpm
mkdir: cannot create directory `AdobeReader_enu-8.1.2': File exists
Package build failed. Here's the log:
dh_clean -k -d

                xargs -0 -r -i cp -a {} debian/adobereader-enu

However I see from http://www.bxlug.be/en/articles/128 that I can use
"debian-marillat" sources - does anybody use acroread from there for
*editting* PDFs?
