Hi, I have recently installed puppy on my old laptop, and my thai-speaking mum wants to be able to access Thai websites. Whenever I try to go onto a Thai website though, (Like Sanook) http://www.sanook.com/ all that is showed up are squares. How do I install Thai onto Puppy Linux? Thanks in advance.

goto setup and choose mouse/keyboard wizard, then choose advanced xorg keyboard configuration. press OK then choose layout.

if you was choose layout then come list of keyboard layout then chose english first, but if come out choiches to add or changge layout then chose add. then add thai keyboard.

now goto option menu and choose groupshift/ lock behaviour (this is for change the key for change the layout from english to thai and thai to english)

and find the key for change the keyboard layout. i always using alt + shift to change the layout, you can choose any other else.

but it cant still reading or writing on thai, you must insert complex font.
this is the link for font http://www.silverdollarsolutions.com/PuppyLinux/pri/pet/Font_East-Asian.pet this is belong shinobar, i am ekstract from his iso.

how do you boot puppy ?

usualy puppy boot with cd then when reboot you will be ask to save to harddisk. or install with frugal option, but it will be same it will be ask to save to harddisk.

let me gues you do like that Very Happy
download the sfs and put on /mnt/home . if you not sure it must be file pupsave.2fs too there

then from menu choose SETUP >> WIZARD WIZARD >> CONFIGURE STARTUP OF PUPPY >> CHOOSE WHICH EXTRA SFS FILES TO LOAD AT BOOTUP.

if you corect place the sfs, it will be there and move it to right pane to mount it then click OK and reboot.


to find menu for keyboard, type scim on terminal

try it and goodluck,

** sory using capslock

The link to my post http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?search_id=128930392&t=67375 may be helpful.

For getting Thai fonts, download a Thai true type font to /usr/share/fonts/default/TTF/
