Description David White 2003-02-01 12:28:16 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20030115

Description of problem:
Downloaded acroread 5.0.6 (Linux version) from Adobe and installed as root. 
Made symlink in /usr/local/bin as root, then tried to run it as normal user. 
Got the following error messages:

[david@localhost acro]$ acroread
Warning: charset "UTF-8" not supported, using "ISO8859-1".

Program never starts.  I reported the problem in the Adobe User's Support Forum,
but &Deity. knows if anyone from Adobe will see it.  

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Download Acrobat Reader 5.0.6 (linux)
2. Install as root, make symlink to /usr/local/bin
3. As normal user, type "acroread" and hit Enter

Actual Results:  Aborted

Expected Results:  Licence dialog, then ability to use Adobe's reader (and
browser plug-in after subsequent configuration)

Additional info:

It would be nice if there were a "Compatibility" component to raise these types
of concerns.

Searched AcroRead README file and didn't see anything relevant.  Are you talking
