How do I fix a stalled installation of Adobe Reader DC using PlayonLinux in Xubuntu 17.10? (I need Adobe Reader because I need particular features not available on other Linux-friendly PDF readers.) I have tried to download and install Adobe Reader DC using PlayonLinux. I was able to install PlayonLinux and successfully started downloading all the files, including Wine. (I think it also installed a version of Windows XP... but I'm not sure.) However, at some point (while I was out of the room) the process of installing Adobe Reader DC got hung up, with this message from PlayonLinux: "PlayonLinux has encountered a fatal error. PlayonLinux will stop the installation process. ... Error in main. Could not find program directory!" I have no idea what this means. I am not a techy person. I don't know any of the commands used on the command line, or even how it works. I'm a total beginner in Linux. Help! The image attached is a screenshot of the error message.
I installed Adobe Reader DC on Ubuntu 18.04 twice: once with wine and again with PlayOnLinux. Both times Reader installed properly except for an error alert just at the end, which I dismissed. It did everything i tried except -- critically -- print, when it would freeze, and could only be stopped by killing it.
