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 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?
I have just upgraded Ubuntu from 13.04 to 13.10. It seems Ibus have been made big changes.Then I just go to system setting -> text entry settings -> add "Chinese pinyin" and "Japanese anty" input method. It works well when I input Chinese or Japanese in terminal or .txt file. But when I want to input Chinese and Japanese in Emacs.
