Regarding CJK (Chinese/Japanese/Korean) TrueType Fonts:

I created two packages for Slackware 12.0 that install the "Han Nom" high-quality Unicode font (free for non-commercial use, which also supports Vietnamese script), and the Arphic Mingti Unicode font (derived from the Arphic font), also a high-quality font and totally free.

For the font package to install on Slackware 11.0 or earlier, simply rebuild the package on your system using the SlackBuild script plus sources - the script will figure out the correct TTF path for your version of X (Slackware 12.0 uses /usr/share/fonts/TTF but previous versions of Slackware use /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/TTF).

Please tell me how you like these fonts, or if you use a different, better (and also free!) font.

There are several threads with already made and perfectly working bytecode interpreter enabled freetype-packages. So, for Slackware user's there absolutely no need to patch the stuff on their own, the packages are nicely made and work perfectly well. Click here

And maybe this is helpful either.
