I downloaded this .deb file recommended in the answers to this question. The icon appeared in my Applications search, but when I click it, nothing happens. If I right-click it, and then click in "Show details" I get a Software window saying "Could not find 'AdobeReader.desktop'.

I also have nothing as output when I run $which adobereader-enu.

Does this really work or am I doing something wrong?

I have just found out that this answer to that same question suggests running sudo apt install libxml2:i386. This solved for me.

But I ended up uninstalling it because there were no commenting and highlighting features.

EDIT: I suggest everyone trying playOnLinux, it uses the version of Wine known to work for each software. (but still couldn't make powerpoint work, though)

    You may try to install with Wine. According to AppDB it supports modern DC version.

  • I had problems with Wine not making MS Office Powerpoint correctly work in the past, although Word and Excel worked fine. But I think that I have no other option, so I hope I have better luck this time. Jan 17, 2018 at 12:33
