Description Marc Deslauriers 2002-07-06 10:43:27 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20020625

Description of problem:
Starting Acrobat 5.05 with the en_US.UTF-8 locale crashes it. en_US works fine.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install Adobe Acrobat 5.05
2.Try to start it using the default locale
3.See it crash

Actual Results:  [mdeslaur@linux bin]$ ./acroread
Warning: charset "UTF-8" not supported, using "ISO8859-1".

Expected Results:  It should have worked

Additional info:

I know it's a proprietary application and Adobe should be the ones fixing it,
but it's popular, so if it won't work in the next version, it should say so in
the release notes.

Note sent to documentation team about mention of 3rd party apps that don't
understand Unicode locales.
