The development version of Scribus can open IDML files (InDesign Markup Language, the official import/export file format for applications that have to work together with InDesign). I am not sure how good the IDML support is currently, so you will have to test yourself... If you want to try the latest development version of Scribus, there is a PPA for that. ...

That's entirely up to Adobe to decide. I would suppose that it mostly depends on how much work it would be for them to port it to GNU/Linux and how many licenses they would have to sell in order to cover the cost of doing so. I personally would also consider the large amounts of free marketing they'd get by porting it, but it might not be part of the ...

There is no Adobe Acrobat Reader DC Linux / Unix version available. So unfortunately you only can install the latest supported version 9.

You should just install the latest version from the Ubuntu repositories. It is a lot easier and normally they keep this one up-to-date with new Linux Flash releases. To install it run the command sudo apt-get install flashplugin-installer

Adobe dropped Linux support in version 2.7 but you can still get and install version 2.6. If that's good enough for you, knowing it's not going to get an update, bug fixes or (importantly) security fixes, you can go ahead with that. There is more information about this on their kb page. If the computer is not network-attatched and there's no foreseeable ...

When it opened, I navigated to where the file was downloaded, in my case it was the Downloads folder, and I ran the following command: sudo dpkg -i *.deb Screenshot of the ...

I found something that says Google's Chrome Browser should do the job (using a "pepper-based version"), and for Chromium there is an ppa. There is no need to add a PPA to your software sources to install Pepper Flash Player 15 in the latest version of Chromium web browser from the Ubuntu Software Center, which is Chromium 38. The latest version of ...

Chromium, such as Chrome, recently dropped support for NPAPI (Netscape Plugin API) plugins, when they introduced their new Pepper Plugin API (PPAPI). So most older plugins don't work any more, including Adobe Flash Player. To get Flash back, you have to use Google's own Flash Player called Pepper Flash. In Chrome, it's installed automatically. But not in ...

And there are two ways you can install it from: sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install kdenlive This will install the latest release ...

Alternatively, there is a .run file for the Foxit reader for Linux. However you should read How to Install Software when you're a future ex-Windows user first as .run files are more difficult to remove then .deb files. If you still want to go ahead: FoxIt downloads page

As Flash is closed-source, Adobe maintains it. Although they now only backport security updates, and have not developed the Linux version beyond 11.2. For more information on how though to get the latest version of Flash on Linux read Thomas W.'s answer here.

How to run a Adobe AIR application on a headless server The problem is not that you are trying to run it from a terminal. The problem is that there is no graphical display running on the machine. You seem to be running on a headless server. I'm aware of two possibilities: If you connect with ssh, you can add the -X option and allow the Adobe AIR ...

The clue was in the text underneath the install box: If you have trouble installing Digital Editions, see the installation TechNote. See the "Manually install Adobe Digital Editions for Windows" section. That has a direct link to download an .exe setup file. I won't link it from here as they will probably update the link in time.

This isn't really an answer to your problem, but in my experience Wine, while a lot better than nothing, just isn't going to run something like Lightroom acceptably fast and reliably compared to a supported platform (i.e. Windows or OS X). This is especially true if you're a power user, and use Lightroom as a professional tool. If you really do rely heavily ...

The first thing to do with any Wine trouble is to look up the application on appdb.winehq.org. It is a really good, community-run database of Windows applications and their compatibility with Wine. From the page on Adobe Audition 3, and the trial version, we can see that people have reported it partly working with Ubuntu 10.04, but there is some extra work ...

Corel as well as Illustrator can recognize and read SVG format. But the problem is that sometimes they don't open SVG properly. Generally some publishers can print from pdf. I think, the main issue is to get along with the publishing house about the file prepared for print.

Depending on what you use Flash for. If you only need it for Youtube and a few well known sites you can use the addon FlashVideoReplacer for Firefox, or the Greasemonkey script Linterna Mágica. LM works on many sites and also on Chrome and Opera in additional to Firefox, though I notice that if Flash is installed it doesn't work on Firefox (Flash player will ...

Try Blender. It is capable of create all types of visual effects, and works better on Ubuntu than on Windows, in my opinion. It is hard to use at first, but it is just as powerful as the commercial software packages.
