    If you use KDE or GNOME, Adobe Reader creates and entry in the menu. Usually under the office or graphics section. What is the output of doing
    Code:
    $rpm -qa | grep -i acroread

    Lol... Don't mean to laugh at your troubles, just laughing about the age old RedHat "installed -- not installed" problem. I think I was encountering it way back in 7.2. It might be from the command line:
    Code:
    acroread
    ...but not sure about this particular one. The "execurable" is likely in /usr/bin, where many apps are started from. Try opening a terminal and do:
    Code:
    /usr/bin/acro
    And press the tab key until it completes out the command for it. That might tell you what it is, or you could search for it manually...
    Code:
    updatedb
    Code:
    locate acro*
    ...and look for it.

    EDIT: Daark.child you're just too fast on the draw!
