Adobe has an acrobat reader for Linux, but I don't think they have a writer
yet.

But you can try one of these:
ps2pdf
ascii2pdf: http://bulldog.tzo.org/ascii2pdf/ascii2pdf.html
Pstill: http://www.pstill.com/

but integrated into an Eclipse based framework, you can directly save to the
Adobe portable document format (PDF).

Officially supported in Red Hat and SuSE Linux distros. I have managed to
install it under 64-bit Fedora 9, 64 & 32-bit Debian and Ubuntu 8.04, and 32
& 64-bit CentOS5.1 but the quality of the fonts vary under unsupported
GNU/Linux distributions.

Formal Ubuntu support is coming from IBM/Lotus in the near future --with a
beta in August 2008. If you have an unsupported GNU/Linux distribution, you
may want to review a few of my relevant web log how-to entries at Metztli
IT's Web Log (< http://www.metztli-it.com/blog >)

Many thanks,

Default adobe acrobat?

Open Office can create PDFs, but cannot read PDFs. There are plenty of
PDF readers on Linux, including Adobe Acroread. There are a few WP
products that can read PDFs, such as Koffice.
