Installing Adobe Reader for DC under WINE on Ubuntu 18.04

Yes, there are sadly still use cases that require this on Linux..

Download here:

Select the Windows 10 option and download the bloated 150MB file.

Then install wine, and add a custom wine directory and run as win32.

$ sudo apt update
$ sudo apt install -y wine-stable winetricks

$ WINEARCH=win32 WINEPREFIX=~/.wine_adobe/
$ WINEARCH=win32 WINEPREFIX=~/.wine_adobe/ winetricks mspatcha
$ WINEARCH=win32 WINEPREFIX=~/.wine_adobe/ wine AcroRdrDC1901020091_en_US.exe
