I purchased and have been using Adobe Acrobat Pro DC for several years. I recently switched from Windows 7 to Linux on my desktop PC. I have tried using both Wine and Virtualbox to run this program. So far, no joy. I am guessing it will not happen. Is anybody getting this to work?

Thanks, Ed

I thought this was the correct location to ask my question. Can you post a link to "online services"?

Thanks, Ed

I have never used the online tools before. I have always used what was installed on my PC. That looks like it will do everything I need.

Thank you.

I know that Linux has some Windows emulators for simple, self-contained apps. But it's unlikely you could get much of Acrobat working. Acrobat includes an app, a printer driver, a print monitor, extensions for MS Office and other third party apps, iFilter for text searching, shell extensions to add right clicks into file explorer and make file extensions, and a lot of background tasks for updating, licensing, cloud syncing and more. I know you can say you'll happily run with just the app, but it installs all of them, and if it fails, won't install at all. Add to that the need to connect to Adobe to check your subscription, and I'd say the chances of success are small indeed.  You can indeed use the online tools, which do a little of what Acrobat does.

I anticipated that it would not work. Since I can use a couple of Linux programs, as well as the online Acrobat Pro DC, I am good to go.

Thanks, Ed
