How may I access the Accept Terms of Agreement button for Adobe Reader, not showing on my screen?

Asked by Alan Bruce on 2010-09-18

I recently upgraded Ubuntu 9.04 to 10.04. From supported software, I downloaded Adobe Reader 9.0. I cannot access the Accept button for the Terms of Agreement as it is not showing on my screen. As a result, the program will not install. The written dialog seems to be cut of at the bottom of the page. I tried to download the Adobe Reader program from adobe.com., and experienced the same problem. Any suggestions?

Hold alt and drag the window up from any point in the app, you can then click accept

Marco,

I went to Mozilla.com and downloaded some plug-ins and extensions designed
for web developers. This installed the address window on my browser. My
problem is solved. Thank you for your response.
