Default PDF Reader/Editor for CentOS 5.7 (32 bit)?

THANK YOU, to each of you who replied, and for the information you provided!

Evince Document Viewer cannot do form filling.
KPDF (based on xpdf) cannot do form filling.
KGhostView cannot do form filling.

I installed pdfedit, a pdf editor, which can do it. This is not what I
used before, which apparently was a pdf reader with form filling
ability, but, this works. :-)

Probably a PDF Editor is not what I was looking for, but a PDF Form
Filler is it.

Adobe Reader I would gladly install, if I knew the proper yum command.
I have the Adobe Repository installed, but so far, no joy, getting yum
to install it. :-)

This is the repo:
[adobe-linux-i386]
name=Adobe Systems Incorporated
baseurl=http://linuxdownload.adobe.com/linux/i386/
enabled=1
gpgcheck=1
gpgkey=file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-adobe-linux
exclude=flash

and the rpm file is AdobeReader_enu

With the Adobe repository installed, "yum search adobereader" should give
you a list of candidates, one of which has it's description in English,
strongly suggesting that "AdobeReader_enu" is what you want. Note that
this will be a 32-bit application, so it will bring in a lot of 32-bit
library dependencies if you're installing it on a 64-bit system.

It actually can, though I'm a) not sure if the version current with CentOS
5.x can, and b) it can sometimes be quirky.

Not familiar with that - I'll have to look at it.

everyone apparently assumes that he wants the Universal English but he lives in a country where Spanish is the norm.

'yum search AdobeReader' should give a wide variety of versions including AdobeReader.esp which is probably what the OP wants.

Thank you! I had the Repository installed, but didn't have the
correct name for the package. The 61 MB download should finish in a
minute or two. I need to leave now, but will check it out later.
Thanks again to everyone! Lanny
