fixing acrobat reader on redhat 8


from term window type this:

su

vi /usr/local/Acrobat5/bin/acroread

* add this *

LANG=en_US
export LANG


///////////// the top of the file should look like this //////////////////

#!/bin/sh
#
LANG=en_US
export LANG
ver=5.0
install_dir=/usr/local/Acrobat5/Reader




/////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

//////////////////// before it looked like this ///////////////////////////
#!/bin/sh
#


ver=5.0
install_dir=/usr/local/Acrobat5/Reader

//////////////////////////////////////////////////

note the difference is:

LANG=en_US
export LANG


now save the file

:wq
exit

^- don't forget to exit from root =)
