On the positive side, it looks like there are a couple of nifty Samba config settings that you might be able use. Check out the ``character set='' or ``client code page='' settings in the Samba configuration. I'm not currently running Samba anywhere so I cannot tell if these are the magic variables or not (sorry) but their descriptions sound like one , or both, of these might do the trick. Also, you might try searching the Networking forum to see if anyone's tackled this problem over there.

Hope this helps out...

I spent a couple of days (=too much) to try to find any "workarounds", but could not find any. It seems that the way the win-partitions are mounted in the file system overrides any samba setting. It just doesn't work.
Regarding your second comment, yes, I will post this question in the networking group, but those guys are the victims and not the reason! Any other recommendations for where to address this issue?

That may be but it seems awfully strange that those options would be available in the smb config file if they were going to be neatly overridden by some mount switch.

Can't think of any off the top of my head other than a Linux-related Usenet group (comp.os.linux.networking or c.o.l.admin).

Good luck...

Hi all:

Merging all of the above, try creating a file "/usr/bin/acroread" and add this to the file:

/usr/local/Acrobat5/bin/acroread &

chmod 755 /usr/bin/acroread

and finaly run:

Hope this helps.
