View Japanese/Chinese PDF files under Ubuntu

Long time, I could not find a good PDF viewer which can enable me to view Japanese/Chinese PDF files under ubuntu - with some files they may works, but mostly they will not - either display garbles or display nothing at all.
evince can display the file all the blank...
Adobe Reader is always telling you that you need to install Asian Font Package, but after many times challenge, I gave up, I installed the font package again and again, but never succeed ...
Foxit Reader is good after doing some settings in font mapping from preference menu, however the display is not perfect as expected.

Finally, I found okular + poppler-data is the perfect solution. It at least displays one of my important file perfectly.

Try following, and that's all!

$sudo apt-get install okular poppler-data
