i use : (/usr/local/teTeX/share/texmf.local/tex/latex/base/utf8.def
File: utf8.def 2005/09/27 v1.1g UTF-8 support for inputenc

I don't use ucs and in the G Wierda's distribution i have :


the problem is here also with utf8x

yes no problem

yes but same problem

The problem is here with TeXshop and TeXniscope but not with Acrobat  
reader 7.0.7 with a printer Brother HL 2070

With Linux and Acrobat and tetex3 no problem.

Yes with linux but xpdf is a part of pdftex 1.30.5 and 1.30.6 and i  
don't have actually xpdf; in the log i have :

This is pdfeTeX, Version 3.141592-1.30.4-2.2. Is it easy to install  
pdfetex 1.30.6 ?

Greetings Alain Matthes

Remark : With Ubuntu on a dell, i have some problem with ucs because  
there is a utf8.def with ucs package. If i don't install ucs,
  i can work very well with utf8
