install Thai fonts - thanks LQ and Barry Kauler
I was trying to install Thai fonts. I did a search in Linux questions and someone said do this
# fc-cache -fv
which seemed to do something and did not report an error.
However, no Thai fonts.
Then somewhere else someone said you have to restart X, so I did Ctrl+Alt+Backspace and guess what?......IT WORKS. I can read Thai fonts in Firefox.
So, thanks LQ.
Also, if you've never tried Puppy linux, try it - it's the bees' bollocks.
