PDF viewing and such - Debian

Hi, I am wondering what everyone here uses to view PDF files in Linux these days? I do use text2pdf for instances where I only care about the textual content, but copying the PDF to OS X or Windows to view it in Reader is getting bersome.

    Default PDF viewing and such

    Hi,

    I am wondering what everyone here uses to view PDF files in Linux
    these days? I do use text2pdf for instances where I only care about
    the textual content, but copying the PDF to OS X or Windows to view it
    in Reader is getting bersome. Recommendations?

    xpdf, gs and Adobe acroread. GPL purists won't like acroread, of
    course, but it does a very good job...

    Yet another solution is to use Adobe's Acrobat Reader for Linux.
    [url]http://download.adobe.com/pub/adobe/acrobatreader/unix/5.x/linux-507.tar.gz[/url]

    Alternatively, you can add one of the following lines to your
    /etc/apt/source.list (depending on what you're running), and then
    apt-get update; apt-get install acroread
    (There's also an acroread-plugin package so you can view PDF's in
    Mozilla / Konq / Old Netscape)

    deb [url]http://marillat.free.fr/[/url] stable main
    deb [url]http://marillat.free.fr/[/url] testing main
    deb [url]http://marillat.free.fr/[/url] unstable main
