Gdk-WARNING : locale not supported by Xlib


Just installed all the required RPMs to install Xvfb. Xvfb is needed to run acroread to process PDF documents.

I am recieving the following errors:

[root@c1pds01 ~]# acroread

(acroread:3129): Gdk-WARNING **: locale not supported by Xlib

(acroread:3129): Gdk-WARNING **: can not set locale modifiers

(acroread:3129): Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display:


Haven't found much yet, any help would be appreciated.

It looks like the locale isn't the real source of the issue.

wow...yeah, definitely had the frame buffer running on 1, not 0.

export DISPLAY=localhost:1 fixed it.


hopefully someone can learn from this silly mistake.
