Subject description: Solved - by adding TTF files to Puppy
 

I settled on Google Chrome as our browser and it's almost right.
The reason that I am posting here is because I think it is a Puppy issue.

When encountering mixed language web pages (English and Korean), Google Chrome works as expected on 3 different PCs.
Windows Vista
Windows 7
Acer Aspire running Ubuntu
but not on the same Acer Aspire running Puppy.

I have tried other browsers with the same results.

Understand that I don't want the page translated, only that the foreign language character, (in this case Korean), to be displayed correctly.
It's partially correct in that the some headers are correct but the content of the frame ? is not. They display as OOOO, sorta, though more square.

This is the site.

Try it yourself and let me know what you see.
If it works ok, I am eager to heart what you use.

thanks

Lol, well it was a struggle.
I downloaded the 2 files onto a Windows 7 PC since I know my way around them a lot better.
The downloaded files are really condensed, or compressed or zip-style.
So, on the PC I rt clicked, extracted, did it again until I got to what looked like a directory tree. At the bottom of the trees, about 4 levels deep I found
8 .TTF files.
TTF = True Type Fonts I think.
I copied the TTFs to a thumb drive, moved it to the Puppy machine and went looking around for more TTF files under ROOT.
I found them at
/usr/share/fonts/truetype/ttf-liberation

I then copied my thumb drive into the Puppy and voila

There might be a better/easier way but this seemed to work ok.

If anyone knows another way or particularly another location for where to copy them, I would like to know it.
I am a bit concerned that in the event software gets updated, my fonts might get lost or overwritten.

Lol, well,,live and learn

Let me try it on my Windows box and see what happens.

Well, I'll be damned. I installed precise and left clicked on the font files and bingo, all is well.
I make my own life hard sometimes, but I will always be reluctant to left click on a file without some idea of what it is going to do.

I used to worry about things like that until I started running Puppy from a multisession DVD. Now I can try anything I like. If I screw up my Puppy, all I have to do is reboot without saving changes and it's back to the way it was. Multisession DVD takes longer to boot, but the wait is worth it for the peace of mind.
