I recently enabled SCIM (found out it was already installed) and finally got it to switch on after restarting my computer. I'm using Slackware 14.1 (though updated to where current was at when the 3.14.4 kernel was released) running Xfce. However, whenever I input Chinese characters (I'm using zhu yin to input), most of the ones shown seem to be in weird box-shaped characters.
I have just installed Lubuntu 14.04.1 LTS (Trusty Tahr) and I need to input Chinese traditional and simplified characters. I have successfully installed Language Support. But in "Keyboard Input Methods" no Chinese options are there of any kind.
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 am trying to use ibus-pinyin to input chinese, But I have a very strange problem,
the ibus input method always give me crazy Chinese characters, for example,
if I type "zhongwen", then, it didn't give me two characters "zhong" and "wen" as I expected, but gave me “zang ongwen” （脏ongwen）, and I can't find any place to chose the characters I want (of course it gave me a lot of characters to choo
I have Chinese input working. I have xterm working. I have utf-8 working in my xterm. For example, I can see the lightning bolt unicode character. But when I input Chinese characters, I get those blocks.
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?
