Most recent wine versions in the past few months, will install and run Acro 
5.0.5 (Reader and Full Acrobat Professional)  and Acro 5.1  for Windows 
without issues -actually amazingly well.

I have not been able to coax 6.0.x to install or work properly yet on either 
wine or Crossover Office.

Hope that helps,
