For a Project of mine I have set latex_documents to something like

latex_documents = [
  ('index', 'doc.tex', 'Documentation', 'Berthold Höllmann', 'manual'),

With this processing fails with:

LANG=C make latex
mkdir -p build/latex build/doctrees
sphinx-build -b latex -d build/doctrees -D latex_paper_size=a4 -N source
Sphinx v0.4.2, building latex
trying to load pickled env... done

    '\\renewcommand{\\indexname}{Index}\n' or '') + \
UnicodeDecodeError: 'ascii' codec can't decode byte 0xc3 in position

The full traceback has been saved in /tmp/sphinx-err-l_u8H4.log, if you
want to report the issue to the author.
Please also report this if it was a user error, so that a better error
message can be provided next time.
Send reports to Thanks!
make: *** [latex] Error 1

changing ö to \"o does work.
