Hi Greencedar, What part of the world do you call home?
Lsemmens,

We are from the Ozarks in central Missouri and are native, and proud, Americans. Our life's calling is missionary work on Taiwan, the Republic of China. So, when we return to the States to report to churches (called a furlough among the saints), we live in Missouri but travel to Michigan a lot and to other locations.

Also, for your information, as a tribute to Linux Mint, I use two computers, (one at our church and one at home), Ubuntu 18.04 and Linux Mint 19.1. Both OS's use the Chinese (Traditional ), software, called "gcin" located in Software Manager. I do want to thank the programmers at Linux / Ubuntu for the inclusion of "gcin" in the Software Manager.

The Linux Mint / Ubuntu "gcin" software is great! On the Linux Mint 19.1 the main language is traditional Chinese that I loaded when I installed Linux Mint 19.1. So (almost) all of the icons, messages, tool bars, notices, etc... are in Chinese. Again, the programmers at Linux Mint (Ubuntu), did a fine job. Both the Linux Mint 19.1 and Ubuntu 18.04 OS's work fine with the Chinese language and the fonts are good.

Also, in Chinese writing, there are two written methods: 1. Traditional, or Complex characters. Traditional, or Complex, Chinese is used mainly on Taiwan and among the US in the Chinese community. 2. Simplified. Simplified is a method developed by the Communist government in China.

I hope I answered your question.

Any other questions?

Is there anybody else that uses "gcin" or one of the other methods of writing Chinese, either "Traditional" or "Simplified," on the forum?

No other questions, but I do pray that all goes well in China you have a wonderful calling!

My eldest is going to marry a Lady from China in a few months. They met, and are living in Australia, (she is an Australian citizen) but are going "home" to China for a traditional wedding. Inland China has always fascinated me, so this will be, I hope, a good opportunity to see some of it.
