Adding Japanese support in 10.2

Hi all,

I am wanting to view some websites in Japanese and Chinese on Slackware 10.2. I did a full install and have compiled the kernel with the required code pages. I am using Firefox and Konqueror for my browsers. My GUI is KDE.

When I go to the Contol Center->Accessibly->Country&Language my only option is US English. I am wondering what other steps are need to view Japanese/Chinese sites? I assume I am missing a package, anyone know which one?

I searched, Google and Linux Questions and have not come across a solution.

In case of Japanese, you might need to install kde-i18n-ja packages which
can be found in ftp mirror's slackware-10.2/slackware/kdei/ directory.

And here you can find a good free Japanese TTF package

On the second Slackware 10.2 CD is a directory called slackware/kdei. The packages for other languages are there. Once you've installed whichever languages you want, they should appear in the Add Language menu you saw before. I had to do this today to get British English support, I can't remember if I had to restart KDE afterwards though.

Hope this helps



japanese, kde
