How do I see notes in a PDF document?

Asked by PeterC on 2008-12-19

I have some PDF documents that have been marked up by a colleague who was using Acrobat on Windows.
Wherever she made a comment, I see a speech bubble in the PDF file when viewed from xpdf or evince.

How do I see the content of the notes?

To install acrobat reader first you need to add the medibuntu
http://www.medibuntu.org/ repository to your /etc/apt/sources.list file.

Here howto add https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Medibuntu
Here the medibuntu available software list http://packages.medibuntu.org/

Then to install acroread:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install acroread

give your user password when requested, you don't see nothing when you type it, then press enter.

There are also other packages related to Adobe Acrobrat Reader
http://packages.medibuntu.org/intrepid/index.html

Hope this helps
