    Issue of display

    HuaMin Chen
      Hi,
      As I have re-setup OL 5.7 again, and due to the issue of the display of the Chinese, I have finished the below steps all from

      http://public-yum.oracle.com/

      and have further done this

      sudo yum groupinstall "Chinese Support"

      but after all these, I still can’t see Chinese within gmail.com.

          If you are using your browser to get to Gmail, it would be an issue with how you have configured your browser.

          If you are using a dedicated email program to get to Gmail, it would be an issue with youe email program.

          I don't think your forum post has anything to do with your OS.

            Dude!
            It is generally not necessary to install a specific language support to display non-English languages unless the fonts used are not Unicode. If you need to write in a foreign, non-English language or character set or want to change the System's primary language, then additional software is needed.

            Unfortunately the situation to enable Chinese is different, not only because of various "codepages" that exist, but also because Chinese Unicode fonts are not installed by default, uses separate fonts and very specific input methods. I guess it may also be due to historic reasons, based on the Linux origin and development. Installing "sudo yum groupinstall "Chinese Support" is therefore necessary to view Chinese web pages.

            The Webpage is usually setting a required code-page, e. g.: UTF-8. You may need to find out what Google requires, but my guess is Unicode. I suggest to verify that your web browser is configured to accept a given codepage and fonts and that you do not have it configured to overwrite the default settings. When installing "Chinese Support" you will need to restart your Web browser for the change to take affect.

              Does restart the browser works? If not log out or reboot your system to take the new font effect, if it still fails, run this command to collect more information:

              # rpm -qa > /tmp/rpm_out

                Dude,
                Even if I have restarted the OS, I do not see it is resolved. Do you remember last time we resolved the same issue like this. And I have already done the same like what last time we did.

                  Try to isolate the problem:

                  a) does it work with any other Website
                  b) does the problem persist when you login as another user
                  c) try another browser

                    Many thanks.
                    1)     Same issue in other Chinese site.
                    2)     Yes
                    3)     Other than firefox, which browser can I use in OL 5.7?

                      Strange. What output do you get when you open Firefox and type the following in the URL field:

                      <pre>about:config</pre>

                      Then type utf in the filter field.

                          Do you see Chinese symbols in the main text when you open:

                          http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chinese_language

                          If you don't, then the installation of "Chinese support" may have not been successful. Try to run "yum groupinstall "Chinese support" and check if there is a problem. The package name is case sensitive.

                          Other things you might want to verify:

                          Firefox Edit:Preferences menu under
                          Content:Fonts & Colors: Advanced: Fonts for Traditional Chinese

                          Firefox View:Character Encoding:Unicode

                            Many thanks Dude.
                            Good day,
                            What do you want me to show you for this?

                            Content:Fonts & Colors: Advanced: Fonts for Traditional Chinese

                            I see that this is already having Unicode (UTF-8) for this

                              I cannot see the reason why it won't work. What do you get when you goto some font test pages like:

                              http://ctext.org/font-test-page
                              http://ktmatu.com/info/view-and-browse-chinese-web-pages/

                              To make sure it isn't any setting that's preventing you from seen Chinese symbols, you could try to reset Firefox to installation defaults:
                              \mv $HOME/.mozilla $HOME/mozilla-bck
                              
                              or delete it if you don't have bookmarks, etc.
                              
                              \rm -r $HOME/.mozilla

                                Many thanks Dude. Is there a way to give you the screenshot from OL 5.7? I will further check your other advice above

                                  The test pages will only verify your installation is working. I trust your judgement that it does nor does not. If it is not, then the screenshot won't help. If it does, then the problem is most likely site specific.

                                    I ran the above command and restarted OL 5.7, but still I can’t see all of the Chinese within
