xterm to display wide font properly

Posted 08-28-2012 at 04:02 PM by ted_chou12

I was trying to use export LANG=zh_TW.UTF8, so that my command line at least give me some feedback in chinese. But despite of a readable font, it doesnt display correctly, because the characters seem to show up with spaces inbetween. That looked ugly. So I searched on the web to customize the font in my ./~XDefaults finally:
Code:
!xsession*windows_manager: icewm-rox
!xsession*sound_server: jackd

xterm*title:		Xterm
xterm*font:		-misc-fixed-medium-r-normal--18-120-100-100-c-90-iso10646-1

for each in "/dev/sd"* ; do
	mname=${each##*/}

				mounts=$(mount | grep

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...
