display chinese properly

Posted 08-17-2012 at 04:01 AM by ted_chou12

Hi, I just made the machine be able to display chinese properly. First, choose a font from your windows directory, usually mingliu.ttc or kaiu.ttf. Since the chinese character db is huge, these files are usually a few mb in size. Copy a desired copy to /usr/share/fonts/ttf and run fc-cache -f -v thru terminal should be able to do it. Ofcourse a reboot is always a recommended option. In addition, since chinese db is the largest, if you chose a ttf/ttc file over ~20mb, jap and kor can usually display along with it.
Attached is a file to test other characters.
