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):
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)
It would be nice if there were a "Compatibility" component to raise these types
See the release notes. This is a known bug (with acroread), with a known
Searched AcroRead README file and didn't see anything relevant. Are you talking
about Phoebe release notes? Where do I find them? Thanks!
