Some update on the conversion tool at http://zh.openoffice.org/servlets/ProjectDownloadList/convert570.zip.

It works FINE under WinXP as well. The GUI is pretty complex and need some 'experiments' before one gets a hang of it. Cool!!! Just love it.

Now, how I wish it is also available for *nix. Wink

Thanks!

Am still trying to setup RedHat 9 on my desktop, can't get my modem
to work. Haven't tried Chinput yet, will do as soon as I get all my
hardware to work on linux.

BTW, regarding OOo1.0/1.1 under English Win98SE, I was able to view
Chinese characters by enabling the Asian Language support, although
I still can't enter Chinese chars via IME nor via TwinBridge, MViewPro, etc.

Thanks! Smile

Is is a "winmodem" ? If so be prepared to have a hard time. I have a Aztech USB 9800 and have tried several drivers that I got from the net but most of the howtos are just too complex for a newbie like me. In the process of trying to get the 'modem' to work I have kill a sizable amount of my brain cells Twisted Evil

Try this
[url]linmodems.org[/url] - (there are many hints there).

BTW show your support and register as a member here Smile

Try your luck at www.gzlinux.org. I got many helpful hints from the guys there (but I'm still struggling to get my laptop's driver to talk to the penguin properly. Twisted Evil

no idea.

See the link above. Personally I find the tool COOL~!!!

Hi,

Thanks for your replies. Been really really busy lately.

At last!!! I got chinese to work under Linux. Am using Fedora Core 1+Chinput, and OO.o works great.. One thing I missed though is the visual keyboard, since I am not really a chinese typist, neet to glance at the keys once in a while. Is there a visual keyboard for Linux?

Thanks a lot!

Joeny

If I not mistaken, Chinput do have a on screen keyboard where you can click on. The keyboard is made to float around the desktop.

Congratulation on your achievement!

Heello, nice to see you all from Malaysia talking about Linux Here. For your information, i'm also using Fedora + Chinese Input (SCIM) + OO 1.1.

Anyway, i faced the problem of displaying chinese big5 fonts properly. Can anyone of you tell me how to solve this problem?

Thanks

I have just discovered that entering the chinese fonts using simplified version, when converting to traditional types, the fonts will not be display nicely....is it the common problem that happened to the chinese documents? HOw about in Windows? Sorry, i'm not often using chinese input....

Can someone answer this question? Thanks al lot first...

Hi,

I got this 'font problem' too with Korean characters on the web. Some characters are being shown with their hex code (i think?). Solved this by installing ttfonts-ko-1.0.11*.rpm.

Maybe you need to install the ttfonts-zh_TW-2.11*.rpm package for Big5 characters.

Hope this helps.

Cheers!
