    anyone know where I can get a copy of Adobe Reader 7 or 8 for Linux
    from a reliable place that does not have backdoors or viruses, etc. ?

    Adobe's site only has 9.5(5?) for Linux

    It was called Adobe Acrobat Reader then

    do you know if Acrobat will open a secure PDF file?

    I bought the CIECAM02 document from CIE, they have a FileOpen
    application but I need Reader 7,8 for the plugin
    http://www.techstreet.com/cie/products/1210075
    http://www.cie.co.at/
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CIECAM02

    their customer service will not open it for me, and have stopped
    replying to me, I will try to continue with them but just thought I
    would ask

    What makes you think you need an older
    version of Adobe Reader? Newer versions
    read older formats, so the newer version
    should work. Perhaps your problem is
    different from what you think.

    Also, the website you gave suggests that the
    PDF file can be downloaded. If true, you do
    not need a plug-in; that is just making
    things unnecessarily difficult.

    Yes, Abobe Acrobat will read a secure PDF.
    However, depending on what was made secure
    (reading, or only copying) you may need a
    password. However, as you paid money for
    this PDF, if you need a password to read it
    then it will be supplied.

    Finally, I still run Adobe Reader 5.0 on one
    system, but it is Windows. I could print
    the PDF for you and mail you the 22 pages.
    Alternatively, you could use one of the many
    free on-line conversion services. Some
    online services will even remove the
    security that prevents copying (eg,
    http://freemypdf.com/).

    Thanks Martin, I have tried the Reader for Linux available on Adobe's
    website, version 9.5.5, it doesn't unlock the file, it says it needs a
    plugin, I have the plugin from the CIE site, but it needs Reader version
    7,8, I don't know a reliable place for this

    I tried the freemypdf website you suggested but it says I need a plugin

    my sister has Windows so I am going to try that route, but I might take
    you up on your offer to open it, Thanks a lot

    Thanks much again, I had to google a bit, the 486 rpm version wouldn't
    install on my 64bit system even though I have the 32 bit stuff
    installed, I found a 386 version deb file and got my document open

    Thanks, this ought to keep me busy for awhile
