kde 4 - kubuntu - okular with japanese fonts


Hello guys and gals.

I've posted before about kpdf and using japanese fonts. I was able to get that to work eventually.

Now I'm trying to use okular to view pdf files with japanese fonts. Can anyone help me discover the correct (or otherwise for that manner) way to be able to view pdf files with okular that have japanese fonts in them?

BTW: I have a 100% english system. I cannot read japanese, but the pdf basically contains English characters from a Japanese font.

Okular CAN open pdf with embeded MS Gothic Japanese fonts!

I visited the KDE page for Okular and discovered that it used poppler for the pdf magic.

I installed poppler-data and low and behold - I can now read my Japanese PDF!!!!

Excellent!!!
