acrobat shortcuts


Hi, using acrobat reader i encounter the following problem:

Code:
~:$ acroread
Warning: locale not supported by C library, locale unchanged
then acrobat reader starts correctly but i can not use any of the shortcuts like
Ctrl+O, Ctrl+W
and so on, so useful on a laptop, not to use the touchpad.

Do you know how to fix the problem?

Thak you

Debian Sarge
kernel 2.6.8

I'm not sure why the shortcuts don't work, but I don't believe the locale warning has anything to do with it.

I don't. If it's only with acrobat, I'd say it's probably a bug in their software.

I use Adobe 7, you might want to upgrade.
Go into edit>preferences>general> and check single key accelerators
The description is a bit off, it takes 2 keys to do most things.
File alt+f file ctrl+o open file atl+t tools alt+w window alt+e edit alt+v view ctrl+w close open doc
