Could depend on the specific pdf file, pdfs can have some adobe only
official spec I expect they aren't supported in free software.
As it has been a few years since I used a pdf form I was curious and
searched for some samples and found both okular and evince allowed me to
fill in and save the forms, one form I got didn't display form data in
evince even though I could see it while editing.
I found that okular has better annotation tools (Tools->Review) which
includes an inline text annotation which would work if you are printing
the form but may not work if you are submitting it electronically.
