Reverting localized Adobe CS5 interface to English

If you’re a Adobe CS5 user and you have a localized language installation but you want to revert to English as the interface language, either temporarily or permanently, follow this tip:

First, completely exit your Adobe product, then follow the instructions for your OS below.

Windows:

In explorer, open C:Program Files (or Program Files (x86))

then AdobeAdobe Photoshop CS5Locales

You should have one (or more) locale folders, such as en_GB or es_MX. Open it, then Support Files within it.

You should see a tw10248.dat file (either with or without the extension, depending on your settings.) Either rename or delete this file, depending on if you want to revert to your localized language installation again in the future, and restart your Adobe product.

Mac:

In Finder’s search box, type tw10428. The file tw10428.dat should appear (either with or without the extension, depending on your settings.). Either rename or delete this file, depending on if you want to revert to your localized language installation again in the future, and restart your Adobe product. (To rename, select File > Get Info)

The interface language should now appear in English.

ld-linux.so.2 process excessively consumes CPU

Reposted from the original bug report at launchpad (Retrieved March 15th 2010)

Once in a while, a process called “ld-linux.so.2” starts consuming all my system resources, with CPU usage between 90-100%, my 2GB main memory AND my complete swap partition used up completely, making the system unresponsive to a degree that even single keystrokes need up to a minute to get interpreted by the system.

A forum post indicates that Adobe Reader 8 is the source of the problem. It claims that installing the “lsb” package will solve the problem. I can now confirm this does not fix the problem. Instead, the acroread process itself will now turn out to be the resource hog (no ld-linux.so.2 process is listed anymore by ‘top’ though).

Two known workarounds:
1) uninstall package acroread
2) when slowdown starts, either killall -KILL ld-linux.so.2 (package lsb not installed) or killall -KILL acroread (package lsb installed).

Flash does not respond to user input (Ubuntu 64-bit, Adobe Flash, Compiz)

You will find that if you are running the 64-bit version of Ubuntu and installed flashplugin-installer or flashplugin-nonfree, that flash controls in Firefox do not work when Compiz is enabled. To fix this, install Adobe’s 64-bit flash plugin.¬† Credit goes to http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1319541 (March 14th, 2010) for the solution that worked for me:

sudo apt-get remove flashplugin-installer flashplugin-nonfree mozilla-plugin-gnash
cd /tmp
wget 
tar xf libflashplayer-10.0.32.18.linux-x86_64.so.tar.gz
sudo mv libflashplayer.so /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/
