This is for Firefox and Mozilla, as reported in
http://plugindoc.mozdev.org/linux.html#Acrobat :

Create a symbolic link to nppdf.so to your Mozilla plugins directory.

In my case it was (all in one line):
ln -s /usr/local/Adobe/Acrobat7.0/Browser/intellinux/nppdf.so 
/usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/nppdf.so

Carlo
