Disclaimer:I've never used any of the Ubuntu flavors.

Have you tried downloading the source and compiling/installing it?  Would you need any help doing that?

http://www.ibiblio.org/pub/Linux/utils/file/managers/mc/
http://www.adobe.com/  Find the download section, and I believe the website will try to automatically detect which version you need.  I believe that this is actually an executable installer that's very similar to the Windows installer.

you need to add universe and multiverse repositories. You can use GUI for this purpose or just edit /etc/apt/source.list

package for acrobad read is acroread so

#apt-get install acroread

and packages for kdevelop:

kde-devel-extras - extra development applications for use with KDE
kdevelop3 - An IDE for Unix/X11 - development version
kdevelop3-data - An IDE for Unix/X11 - data
kdevelop3-dev - An IDE for Unix/X11 - development files
kdevelop3-doc - An IDE for Unix/X11 - documentation
kdevelop3-plugins - An IDE for Unix/X11 - development files

hope this helps

Excelent - I wonder why it's not there by default?
However adding multiuniverse repo results in Ignore or Not Found during 'apt-get update'? What could I do wrong?
deb http://pl.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ edgy multiuniverse
deb-src http://pl.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ edgy multiuniverse
deb http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu edgy-security multiuniverse
deb-src http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu edgy-security multiuniverse

Cześć

not sure, you can try some other repositories just to see if that is cause the same problem.
example:

deb http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ edgy multiuniverse
