Installing multiple language packs [SOLVED]

Postby muzzwood on Wed Nov 17, 2010 10:09 am

Hi all,

I've just come over to LMDE from Ubuntu 10.4 and I'm loving the change.

Well, mostly.. I can't figure out how to install any language packs.

I'm studying Chinese and on Ubuntu I was able to install the Chinese language packs and then use iBus to switch between input methods when typing.
How can I do this with LMDE?

Also, when browsing the web, Chinese characters don't display. They just come up as garbage. I'm assuming this would be remedied when I can install the language pack though.


Is anyone able to offer any insight?

Thanks in advance!
Muzz

--Solved--

I managed to find a most excellent guide here:

For anyone having the same problem, this method is quite a bit more involved than Ubuntu's but it works! :)
