Asian fonts

Post by newfie »

Though I am not new to Linux, every distro I've used automatically made use of Asian fonts. When using LMDE, all Asian (Chinese, Korean, Japanese, Cambodian.. etc) fonts show up as blocks.

What package do I need to install?

Just install the fonts manually using synaptics.

Sorry about the slow response :)

I haven't gotten anywhere yet. I still don't know which package to install!

Type "japanese" in synaptics and you'll find them.

For example:
ttf-sazanami-gothic
ttf-sazanami-mincho
ttf-kochi-gothic

Just install one or all of them.

And if you wanna write in japanese or chinese, install iBus and anthy.
