The current versions for Linux don't support CJK, if you need that, then use Okular or even xpdf.

Here here! How long has it been since 6 was released on Windows? 1 year? 2 years?

Either change the name from Portable Document Format to Windows Document Format, or port your reader to Linux. Drop the Motif crap, buy a Qt license and get done with it.

No version 6 of Adobe Acrobat Reader for Linux
Dispate the claim of Adobe as pdf a format to be easly used on any system there is no a version 6 of Adobe Acrobat Reader.

I often have an ugly pop up windows says me to update to a newer version. I click OK and I download the same version I already have (becouse is the last). But I can not have version 6 and I can not use the function that need version 6

LANG=eng_US

export LANG

Well I just opened a bug report at the Adobe web site today. Lets see if they fix this.

Re: Aborted:
dictd won't start unless you run it with:
--locale=en_US.UTF-8
Of course it won't report any errors, just mysteriously fail to start.

I found the same - and you're right, your solution
