Description of problem:
This is actually not a problem with xpdf but I had to select a component .

I am not sure if this is the right place to report this type of bug
but here goes:

I installed the adobe acrobat reader.Installation went fine using the
install script that is provided with the distribution but when I try
to run the program it does not start:

[daemmon@localhost rpms]$ cd /usr/local/Acrobat5/
[daemmon@localhost Acrobat5]$ ./bin/acroread
Warning: charset "UTF-8" not supported, using "ISO8859-1".
Aborted


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.download
ftp://download.adobe.com/pub/adobe/acrobatreader/unix/5.x/linux-508.tar.gz
2.extract
3. ./INSTALL
4. cd /usr/local/Acrobat5/ (default install location)
    

Actual Results:  output:
Warning: charset "UTF-8" not supported, using "ISO8859-1".
Aborted

Expected Results:  application should start

Comment 1 Daemmon Hughes 2004-01-17 02:03:56 EST
Found solution in Adobe forum:
 I also observe the following error upon starting Acrobat Reader 5:

$ /usr/local/Acrobat5/bin/acroread
$ Warning: charset "UTF-8" not supported, using "ISO8859-1".
$ Aborted

This is true whether I install the rpm or the tar.gz. Acrobat 4.05
works without problems. However, once I (accidentally) managed to
start it up (God knows how, I guess I clicked some pdf file). So it
works but on some RedHat 9 installs seems to be broken. But editing
the acroread file (/usr/local/Acrobat5/bin/acroread) as above
mentioned really works. After the line:

install_dir=/usr/local/Acrobat5/Reader

just insert these two line:

LANG=C
export LANG
