I think adobe PDF viewer should be able to do this. If not try foxit reader. Both are foc.

I think not........
If you are looking for a tool to create pdf forms, yes then it cannot be done with adobe reader and you need acrobat.

But you are specifically asking about filing a pdf form, which can be done with adobe reader.
I have a pdf already created that I wish to fill in.... Any ideas? I'm looking for Desktop software...

Can you explain what is the issue with adobe reader?
This is a desktop software, free of charge and can use to fill pdf forms.

this is what adobe says "Allow virtually anyone to fill in and save PDF forms using free Adobe® Reader® software*"
It sounded from that statement that they must be created with this option in mind.... I'm downloading version 9 to see if it allows filling in of my pdf...
However Adobe is very expensive.....
That nitro program is $99.  Try the trial version.
adobe reader is free of charge
Version 9 seems to only have a 30 day trial...?
The limitation is for acrobat only, reader is free.

Anyone tried PDFedit for Linux? Any tips for installing on RedHat CentOS?
I found primo pdf to work well.
