at a guess you need to copy the thai fonts out of the computer that created the files into puppy font folder. else look on the web or even this forum for more thai fonts


I don't think getting more fonts will help-
the problem as I understand it is,

ext2 format partitions display thai font correctly, but

vfat format partitions display incorrectly ?

Dear Flash
When i copy ???.doc from /mnt/sdb1 to /mnt/sda 5 , it show ???.doc.

When i copy <readable - thai - font > file from
/mnt/sda 5 to /mnt/sdb1 , it show <readable - thai - font > file.

When i insert other removable device. /mnt/sdc1 show ???.doc , ????.pdf.


just re-read this, now it sounds like the problem could be how the files themselves are named.

can you tell us what format sda5 and sdb1 partitions are in ?

If after you have copied the files, when you reboot do the names stay the same - or are all on sda5 <readable thai> and all on sda1 <???> ?

darkcity this one says that the fonts are being read correctly. . although i do agree that partition format does cause problems of this nature
edit: just read previous post
new fonts could be obtained from any computer that can read the file titles,assuming windows hasnt messed with its font arrangement since i last looked long ago.

Thank you everybody.

Progress note....
I installed thai fonts from
ftp://linux.thai.net/pub/ThaiLinux/software/thai-ttf/
then add all to puppy folder.
Restart X.
: I can read thai- name files in all drives.

Thanks very much for all suggestions.
See you again.

Great stuff. I was wrong, adding a font (thai) sorted it. Can you mark the topic at [solved] by editing the title on the first post?

The mystery is why Puppy could read the Thai filenames from one drive but not another. Confused
