And if it doesn't help, please tell us what's wrong or what's missing. It is a new HOWTO and the people who wrote it don't have experience with Chinese language.

Hi all, cool. thanks for the help.

The document has solve my issued.
I updated the /etc/profile.d lang.sh

I update the .sh file by appending .UTF-8 to the end of the line as shown below.
# en_US is the Slackware default locale:
Code:
export LANG=en_US.UTF-8
Cool it works and display the chinese characters correctly.

Thanks
