Question Why is it difficult for my linux to install software?


I am a starter ,though there are lots of software installed almost for everything, I found that it is uneasy for a Chinese learner to use it.Almost every PC user prefer sip to linux around me. it is likely that there is still a long way to go.but I have every confidence in myself! one of my question is:Why my pdf reader does not support Chinese characters?What should I do to improve this situation? thank you.

What linux distro/version are you using?

You will probably have to install some extra packages to get CJK support in your pdf reader. What pdf reader are you using?

Please do this command in the terminal window :

cat /etc/issue
