How to display Simplified/Traditional Chinese characters on RedHat Linux machine
 
Hi All,

I want to run our application in simplified chinese and Traditional Chinese langauges. What are the environment setting required for running the applcation in these langauges. In general for red hat, what environment should be set for different languages.

For simplified Chinese I tried the following:-

Changed the /etc/sysconfig/i18n file to the following: -

LANG="zh_CN.gb2312"
SUPPORTED="zh_CN.gb2312:zh_CN:zh"
SYSFONT="lat0-sun16"
SYSFONTACM="iso15"

Also I set the environment variable "LC_CTYPE" to "zh_CN.gb2312"

But the messages are not coming properly. Am I missing something to set.

Please can anyone tell me about what environment should be set for different languages in redhat linux.

Thanks And Regards
Chetan

Have you install the fonts.
I don't know what fonts doe Chinese users use but international user can use Arial Unicode MS.
BTW:
RedHat linux is too old, I suggest you ito install FC5, it has the generic fonts thought these fonts are quite ugly

your application should be no problem in gnome-terminal When your redhat is Chinese version,.
If you want to run the application in the terminal under single mode or other modes
,you may install and run zhcon first.zhcon can support Chinese.
