Question *resolved*Why can't i get Korean in KDE after full slack install?


Hi Ya,

I just did a full slack 11.0 with KDE 3.5 install and can't get korean, chinese or japenese, all other languages are ok, i select language from the control centre i get characters that are square boxes all the same, how can i fix this?

You don't extract it anywhere. You just install the package with "installpkg filename.tgz".

It seems you need .ttf fonts with korean/japanese characters:
