newbie: Acrobat Plugin


When I try to run acroread I get the following message:

Warning: charset "UTF-8" not supported, using "ISO8859-1".
Aborted

Mozilla just hangs if I try to view a .pdf, but I assume that this is for the same reason. I also have another related question. How do I make an export command a permanent part of the user environment. I'm using:

export PATH="$PATH:/usr/local/Acrobat5/bin

but this only stays in the env until I restart (obviously, I presume).

Use the following command in place of acroread:
env LANG=C /usr/local/Acrobat5/bin/acroread

I use
alias acro="env LANG=C /usr/local/Acrobat5/bin/acroread"
in my ~/.bashrc for comman line execution of acroread.

Ok, great - that worked for launching Acroread from the terminal. However, I'm just getting started here, so I'm still a bit lost. What do I need to do so that the Mozilla plug-in works as well? If you could really spell it out for me, that would be very much appreciated!

Thanks
