Fix your chinese support in Debian 4.0

While Debian GNU/Linux 4.0 (Etch) released on Easter, there are some bugs on the Chinese support:

  • Display Full-width(全形) English character in HK locale - If you choose the HK during installation, Debian will not install the font “AR PL ShangheiSun Uni” (ttf-arphic-uming). Then it will use 12×13ja.pcf.gz in xfonts-base to display the Chinese character . Install ttf-arphic-uming will fix it.
  • No Chinese Input Method - You should install scim yourself. For hongkong people who prefer using Cangjie/Quick input method, you can install scim-tables-zh and APT will install every things you need
  • Don’t start Chinese input method engine automatically - You should install im-switch yourself

What you need to do is:

su -c 'apt-get install ttf-arphic-uming scim-tables-zh im-switch'
