    Adobe Acrobat Problems


    I installed adoba acrobat reader 5 for linux and everything went ok. The problem is that when i tried to run acroread i got an erron about UTF-8 not supported .... aborted. I search the internet and i found the following commands that fix the problem:
    set | grep UTF
    export LANG=en_US

    The thing is that i have to run these commands everytime i need to use acrobat reader. Isn't there a way to make this things run auto so that i can put a launcher in my desktop.
    The acroread command is in /etc/local/Acrobat5/bin/

    Well, you can make a small shell script that just looks like this:
    Code:
    #!/bin/sh
    export LANG=en_US
    exec acroread
