On a Debian system, I installed Adobe Acrobat Reader using the Linux binary (AdbeRdr9.4.2-1_i486linux_enu.bin) downloaded from Adobe's website. What's the right way to uninstall Reader when it was installed this way?

By default, Adobe Acrobat Reader is installed under /opt. If so, you should run:

# /opt/Adobe/bin/UNINSTALL

If this file should not exist, install over the previous installation with the newest .bin from Adobe and the file should appear.
