Install Japanese and Korean in Ubuntu 9.04


Now I know that SCIM is a default in Jaunty Jackolope.

However, with the environment changed in from Ibex to Jackolope, I feel sort of lost.

Is the Mincho font already a default for Japanese support in Jaunty Jackolope?

Perhaps I need clues to set up Japanese and Korean.

Dear community. I request help to find ways to install Korean and Japanese fonts and keyboard in Ubuntu 9.04. Thank you.

Japanese: default package, ttf-sazanami-mincho, ttf-sazanami-gothic.

'apt-cache search mincho'
ttf-dejima-mincho ttf-hanazono ttf-kochi-mincho ttf-kochi-mincho-naga10
... and other Japanese fonts, please use the "Search" in Synaptic :
ttf-vlgothic ttf-mikachan ttf-kochi-gothic

Korean: default package, ttf-unfonts-core, but it's a meta package.

'apt-cache search korea'
ttf-unfonts-core ttf-unfonts-extra ...

But please use the 'search' functions and see for yourself ...
Other "keywords" : 'japan' , 'ttf-' .
.....

Could you explain more? It is a bit hard to follow.

In the Gnome Menu :
System > Administration > Synaptic
> > enter password
... and the Synaptic package manager will open.

Then please use the "Quick Search" or "Search"
by entering one of the possible keywords, e.g.
mincho.
.....
.....
And again from the Gnome Menu :
Applications > Accessories > Terminal
... for the command line examples, e.g.
'apt-cache search <keyword>' or
'sudo apt-get install <package> <package> <package> <package> ...'
for installing the fonts, you want.
.....

Unpacked Japanese font, now what?

Hi knudfl,

Thanks for posting this info. I did what you suggested and unpacked a Japanese font (umefont). How do I set this as the default for Firefox?

Anyone know where there are any instructions on installing the Windows Japanese fonts?

Thanks in advance!

Say open a link using Japanese fonts e.g.
http://www.luxman.co.jp/
Is it about those fonts ? I think, the fonts specified by
the site creator are supposed to be shown.

May be do some changes here
Edit > Preferences > Content > Default Font → Advanced.

Or is it the fonts in Firefox toolbar etc. ?
Then you need a Japanese version of Firefox,
And may be also change your default language ?

Thanks!

Thanks knudfl,

Your information really helped me to update the default font in Firefox by using the preferences after loading in additional Japanese fonts. It now looks so much better.

Cheers!

Some comments about extra fonts.ttf
( may be windows fonts too ? )

cd /usr/share/fonts/

sudo cp <path-to-new-fonts>/<font>.ttf .
.. where the dot ( . ) means the current directory.

And start ( or restart ) Firefox, and the new fonts are
usable and visible at once, no "font configuration" is needed.
