I can auto-magically see pdf inside konqueror.
I mean... I don't remember what I did... but it worked out of the
box. I think it works thanks to okular integration.

I'm not a big user of openoffice but I know it now has the
possibility to edit pdf.
I had some issues with pdf written in Chinese in the past. The
situation didn't require to insist in solving the problem. So I
can't say if it doesn't have a solution.

I've skype working on my Debian sid installing the ia32-* stuff and
it is a gtk application up to my knowledge.
I really really would prefer to avoid it but I don't know any SIP
equivalent that could be accepted as a reasonable substitute by
Windows users...
Right now I'm happy without Acroreader at least.

Unfortunately I've a lot of ia32 installed so I don't know which is
the minimum required.
