Bodhi linux :How to install Chinese language

At first : I am french and not very proud of my English
A few days ago, I installed BodhiLinux on my EeePC 1500 And I enjoy it, almost all is easy and my old computer is young again !
I should be happy to install the chinese language (the simplified one) but I don't see it in Ibus and I don't know what to do.
Please : well, I can use the command line if the explanations are very clear for an old man like me.
Thank you for your help !

Thanks for your answer. I think my question was not clear : sorry.I am not looking for a linux distro in chinese language, but i try to install some others languages-as German or Greek- in my french Bodhi linux. I did that in the Ubuntu one, using Ibus ( but my little EeePC does not support this distro too heavy, and I choosed a Bodhi linux which is very light). Unfortunately, this language does not appear in the listing of Ibus
At least, I should be happy if I could see the sinograms displayed - and not some little squares.
Thanks for your help.

The live chat link (it uses Discord) is available through the Bodhi web page ( under the Community menu entry.

Hello there

I will try to guide you to make your Bodhi understand Chinese

1. sudo apt update && sudo apt install language-pack-zh-hans
2. Menu-Settings-Modules-Settings(tab)-Load Language
3. Menu-Settings Panel-Language(tab)-Language Settings
4. follow this thread to switch to Chinese keyboard layout


Is this something you can read in Chinese?

PS: I can see some Moksha text are not translated into Chinese. Feel free to participate and tune the languague if it is on advanced level.
