When trying to export an SVG file with Chinese characters to PNG using Inkscape, the Chinese characters disappear. I use this command in Ubuntu:
inkscape /root/21.svg -e /root/1.png

The linked directory in this github repository contains a file chinese.svg that I originally made using inkscape on a linux machine. The drawing contains Chinese characters. If I open it on my current linux machine, the characters are garbled: they appear as a random mixture of Latin characters and punctuation. The correct rendering is shown in the file chinese.pdf in the same directory.
I am having many problems reading Chinese characters not saved in the UTF-8 format. After doing the "file" command, I realized that nearly all of the files that I have problems reading in Ubuntu are ISO-8859 English text, with CRLF, NEL line terminators.
I have some problems with images I created with Inkscape (processed by pdflatex).
I produced a book which I'm trying to publish by CreateSpace.
The images in the proof of the document produced by CreateSpace appear to be altered in the print: some characters are moved around randomly, sometimes two characters have switched locations within the same image.
Every time I send Chinese text messages, people can receive it, but when people send me Chinese messages, all I see it *** instead of 你好吗? All Chinese texts replace the hanzi (characters) for ******* asterisks. It really bothers me that I can't read characters.
Anyone know how to fix this? is this even fixable? is it a Metro issue?
After being away from Ubuntu for a year I have came back and I have really liked the improvements in the latest release. The only issue I have found is that in the terminal some programs display Chinese characters where it should be English. I have checked my language settings and everything looks ok in there.
