Acrobat Reader in AMD64

While I was installing Acrobat Reader 9.5.3, I've got the following error:

# dpkg -i --force-architecture AdbeRdr9.5.3-1_i386linux_enu.deb
(Reading database ... 179355 files and directories currently installed.)
Preparing to replace adobereader-enu 9.5.3 (using AdbeRdr9.5.3-1_i386linux_enu.deb) ...
Unpacking replacement adobereader-enu ...
dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of adobereader-enu:
 adobereader-enu depends on libgtk2.0-0 (>= 2.4).

dpkg: error processing adobereader-enu (--install):

Errors were encountered while processing:

There is no official AMD64 package, then we have to install some i386 packages, so....

#dpkg --add-architecture i386
#aptitude update

And add all the missing libraries...

#aptitude install -f
#apt-get install libgtk2.0-0:i386  libxml2:i386 libstdc++6:i386

and it is better to download and install the bin file
#chmod +x AdbeRdr9.5.5-1_i486linux_enu.bin
