Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I'm wondering whether some of you is able to print a chinese webpage?
I use mozilla 1.7.12 and when I do so, I get some strange square, not chinese caracter i mean.
Whereas I'm able to display chinese caracters from html page ....
I guess it's a problem from ps font .... or mozilla configuration.
Regarding the "input" part of this topic, can anyone help me with inputting Chinese characters?
I have installed scim, scim-pinyin and skim. It starts up fine and allows me to configure it, but I can't figure out how to actually use it. The config seems to suggest that I can trigger it with Ctl-Space, but that doesn't do anything.
You have hijacked aihaike's thread. If you will search here
at LQ, you will find some threads discussing Chinese input.
I didn't even install "kde-i18n-zh_CN" and/or "kde-i18n-zh_TW"
on this Slackware install, and it prints characters. So I'm
not sure where the font support comes from, but I do have some
Chinese fonts available. Can you post a link to a page that you
cannot get to print properly? I'll try it...
Here is my lang.sh file. Watch the line of export XMODIFIERS=@im=SCIM
[PHP][#!/bin/sh # Set the system locale. (no, we don't have a menu for this ;-)
# For a list of locales which are supported by this machine, type:
# locale -a
# en_US is the Slackware default locale:
# 'C' is the old Slackware (and UNIX) default, which is 127-bit
# ASCII with a charmap setting of ANSI_X3.4-1968. These days,
# it's better to use en_US or another modern $LANG setting to
# support extended character sets.
# There is also support for UTF-8 locales, but be aware that
# some programs are not yet able to handle UTF-8 and will fail to
# run properly. In those cases, you can set LANG=C before
# starting them. Still, I'd avoid UTF unless you actually need it.
# Another option for en_US:
# One side effect of the newer locales is that the sort order
# is no longer according to ASCII values, so the sort order will
# change in many places. Since this isn't usually expected and
# can break scripts, we'll stick with traditional ASCII sorting.
# If you'd prefer the sort algorithm that goes with your $LANG
# setting, comment this out.
Everything displays fine and changing the locale gives me a Chinese UI, scim starts just fine, but I still cannot seem to activate the Chinese input (Ctl+Space does nothing).
My sorry but I thought that in order to print chinese one had to install xcin or gcin. What is scim, scim-pinyin,zhcon ,skim and CLI?
when I set up my /etc/profile.d/lang.sh with your parameters fonts used by in my environement look not nice. When I go back to LANG=en_US it works find and I can evan read chinese in cxterm.
you're right printing chinese with firefox 1.5 is just magic!!
Scim is an input method (platform) for non-English languages. And scim-pinyin is a input table only for Chinese which input Chinese characters by their pronunciation syllable(we call it pinyin).
Skim is an input method platform based upon scim-lib under *NIX systems (including GNU/Linux and FreeBSD) optimized for KDE. It provides a GUI panel (named scim-panel-kde), a KConfig config module and setup dialogs for itself and the libscim. It also has its own plugin system which supports on-demand loadable actions. Please check their homepage out: http://www.scim-im.org
Zhcon is a Fast double-byte virtual console for Chinese/Japanese/Korean (CJK) running under GNU/Linux and FreeBSD. It adds the ability of displaying and inputing CJK double-byte characters on console device. Check its homepage out: http://zhcon.sourceforge.net/
Regarding bad looking fonts, what exactly it is? Any screenshot? Is it the story of anti-aliasing Chinese fonts?
