Uninstall Mozilla

First off,what method of mozilla installation are you using?RPM?Tarball?

If RPM,you can uninstall the program by typing rpm -e softwarename in the console.

If tarball,you have to find out where did you install the software.You can find the installation path by find / -name file_which_you_want to search -print.Then,you can delete the folder associated with the software by rm -fr foldername.You have to be sure this folder is the one which you wanna delete.There's no warning message before deleting the folder.

Although I am a Chinese,I seldom use Chinese besides browsing website.You can use chinese in your whole system by choosing the Language you use before login.Try to figure it out on your own...Because I am using Window$ right now.

Thanks a lot

You chinese ?
I should give my greeting to you first.
using your method , I 've solved the problem, and what I 'm not content with is that the title bar of mozilla is still hard to read opening a chinese web page .
Another problem is I can not type chinese character into my computer, can you do me a favor to help me twice ?

Chong-Kit for typing Chinese

You may try to press Ctrl+Space in order to input chinese by Chong-kit/Chong-Chit.I don't know the correct mandarin of this input type.Anyway,try out and tell me what's the result.

P.S. I am using Window$ right now....Except check out my server status by ssh to Linux.

Do you mean the name of the software package "chong-kit" ?
Is it a rpm or tar ? I 'm not very clear.

Another problem : ( I 'll try to be clear for you to understand. )
I can not use linux to surf on the net, but get a share from my roommate whose pc is the server running windows XP ? We usually use a ID and a passwd ISP gives us to link to the internet, but not for linux I think , since you can hardly find a linux system in our campus. Do you have the same experiences ?

could not display chinese

hi,

"chong-kit" is the Cantonese way of saying "Cangjie" (Mandarin pinyin), and this is a commonly used input method for Chinese character input. If you've never seen this method before, search Google for "Cangjie input method", there are some great websites out there! Personally, as I am an English speaker (or as close as an Australian can get to being one ;o) I tend to use smart pinyin method (or jyutping for Cantonese)...but native Chinese speakers would usually find Cangjie or Wubi a bit more "logical" to use...

As to your second question, I think you may have been better off starting a new thread because it is totally off this topic of Chinese software issues. Do a search throughout Linux Questions in the Networking section, I'm sure someone else has solved this problem before...whilst we're on the topic though, as long as your campus doesn't have any rules against using Linux PC's on their network (the company I work for sure does!), there shouldn't be any reason why you can't set up your PC to use the internet through a shared connection. Ask the campus IT Dept. for help, they will give you the correct settings etc. for you to set it up...it's all in a good cause...

cheers,

jdw
