Quick Adobe Reader install on Ubuntu 13.04

Whilst EVINCE is a very capable PDF Viewer, if you have a need to fill in editable PDF forms it is required to install the Adobe PDF Reader.

sudo add-apt-repository "deb http://archive.canonical.com/ precise partner"
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install acroread

PS: If anybody is aware of an Open Source alternative to the Adobe Reader for editable form please leave a comment !
