I'm using Precise 5.7.1, and am trying to find a way to display Japanese characters in the Opera web browser. However, everything I've searched seems to point to SCIM instead. How do you install & display Japanese characters?

Do you have a Japanese font installed?

Here is a link to CJK_fonts-ttf.pet that include Chinese Japanese and Korean characters.

Simply download a Japanese font of your choice and copy it to /usr/share/fonts/default/TTF/

I use M+1P+IPAG, which you can download here:
ftp://210.159.71.23/pub/linux/puppylinux/fonts/M+1P+IPAG.ttf

Thanks. I was wondering the same thing, and this worked for me! Smile

I ended using one called unifont.ttf (from lang_pack_all-0.9.sfs) so I could also see Hindi, Thai, Korean and others.

Great, I'm up and running! Thank you all, especially to darkcity. I chose his font pack out of all the other options. Either option will do.

That was pretty easy. I was expecting a more complicated and over-sophisticated method.
