Uninstalling Adobe Acrobat Reader on Linux

The Adobe Acrobat Reader for Linux sucks. Unfortunately I didn’t know this before I installed it. When I did realize how bad the program was, I couldn’t figure out how to uninstall. I had downloaded a “.bin” file from Adobe and executed it. However, the same “.bin” file couldn’t be used to remove the program.

After some googling around I found that the way to get rid of Reader is:

  1. Open a terminal and cd to the directory where Acrobat Reader was installed. For me, this was “/opt/Adobe/Reader9/bin”
  2. Run the “UNINSTALL” script within this directory. You might need to do a “sudo ./UNINSTALL”
