From here I obtained the latest deb file, double-click that opens
Software Center and click
install. I got:
The package is of bad quality The installation of a package which violates the quality standards isn't allowed. This could cause serious problems on your computer. Please contact the person or organisation who provided this package file and include the details beneath.
Detail providd is posted here. On the same popped up window there's an option to "ignore and install" which I very much hesitate to go on with.
Also with the same .deb file I tried from commandline as suggested here:
sudo dpkg -i AdbeRdr9.4.6-1_i386linux_enu.deb
userdayo@ubuntu:~$ sudo dpkg -i AdbeRdr9.5.3-1_i386linux_enu.deb (Reading database ... 197960 files and directories currently installed.)

ia32-libs is installed per suggestion here.
Env) Ubuntu 12.10 (tested on 2 machines, 1 is notebook 1 is virtual machine) 64 bit
Any idea to work around? Thank you.
