Sub_title: After four misdirected attempts at enabling Chinese support, a successful method is found
 

I've been trying for months now to enable Seamonkey in Puppy 4.0 to display Chinese characters. I'd tried four different methods suggested by various posters, and all failed completely. I'd just about given up when MU pointed me to a fifth approach yesterday.

It took me a while to try it, partly because the procedure described was for Puppy 3.01, and I'm running 4.0, where the file structure is slightly different, but mainly because of shellshock from the four previous suggestions that bombed.

I finally booted from LiveCD with the pfix=ram parameter, to test this method without risk of corrupting my 2fs file, and installed the fonts as directed, except to the
Code:
/usr/lib/x11/x11/fonts/misc
folder, instead of the path suggested for Puppy 3.01. And it worked as advertised.

There is no need to install the Chinesesupport.pet for this to work.(But you will need to install the Chinesesupport.pet if you want to search downloaded freedict databases offline in PBdict in Puppy 4.0)

The credit goes to Sunshinemaple, who suggested the correct installation procedure on Mar 9

Cool
Once finished download, pupzip will extract the files. Remember to extract them to a folder "WQY" or something you would remember.
Copy all fonts to
/usr/lib/x11/fonts/misc
close and reopen browser, (I am using SeaMonkey 1.1.2, Puppy Linux 3.01) enjoy reading traditional/simplied Chinese.
Thanks for Wen Quan Yi Project's great contribution.
,

and to MU who found this gem and directed me to it.

Thank you both!

If you ever want a version of FirePup in Chinese I can translate for you, I learned how to transform it into other languages, because someone ask for it to made into french, So I learned a great deal about that. If you do want it, Just ask in the thread for it Smile
