    what did you use to install, rpm? or the source? if you installed from rpm it will look something like this
    Code:
    rpm -e acrobatreader
    (use the tab completion to find filename if from source, just cd to the directory installed in and
    Code:
    make uninstall
    if it came on your suse distrobution, then look in yast or whatever suse's native package managment system is and use that to remove it (should be very simple, like unchecking a box and clicking 'ok')
