I have a friend that wants to view chinese webpages and write in chinese but wants puppy to remain in english.

is that possible? the font you are using looks much better than any i have found could you upload them some where?


Yes, I think Chinese is getting popular among non-native Chinese. People want to learn Chinese but they don't want Chinese menu in Puppy. I just made a pet package just for you guys.

Firstly, you have to install Unicode font. Please refer to

http://puppylinux.org/wikia/LanguageSupport

Look the section: G2: Th show documents in International fonts
Make sure you can read Chinese by cliking a Chinese web site.

Secondly, download the pet package I have made:
Ftp site: ftp.servage.net
user: puppy
pass: linux
directory: Chinese_puppy
file name: chinese_input-0.01.pet

Thirdly, install the pet package and reboot your computer.
Once your computer is booted, you can try to input Chinese by opening Leafpad or Abiword and hit "Ctrl + Space".

Note:
Unfortunately, the Chinese IM (Scim) setup menu is in Chinese. I have trouble to make it to display in English. The default locale is set to zh_TW.UTF-8, therefore the menu is in Traditional Chinese. If you want to display it in Simplified Chinese, you need to change the locale to zh_CN.UTF-8.

Have fun Very Happy

Hi cecc,

Do you mean you'll test it with fresh Puppy in "en_US" environment?
I don't know it will work under Chinese Puppy.

Thanks for making this pet.

It works fine on 2.17.1, but the Smart Pinyin input method seems missing. I think the Smart Pinyin input method is very popular among those who know a little Chinese and those who want to study Chinese, so I would appreciate it very much if the next version could include it.

Thanks for your consideration.

Hi Woodys,

I made the Smart Pinyin input method package for Scim.
You can download it from:

Ftp server name: ftp.servage.net
User: puppy
passwd: linux
directory: Chinese_puppy
program name: scim-pinyin_0.5.91-i486.pet

Note: You have to install "chinese_input-0.01.pet" package first.
Then you install this Smart Pinyin package.
If you have any problem, please let me know.

Have fun Very Happy

It works great. Much appreciated.

Previously I used these four pup packages at

http://freeforums.bizhat.com/index.php?mfo...om&showtopic=90

They also work in Puppy 2.17.1.

Thanks again.

Hi Woodys,

The mentioned link doesn't have the packages any more.
By the way, I found a way for scim to display its menu in English. Go to /usr/share/locale/zh_CN/LC_MESSAGES and /usr/share/locale/zh_TW/LC_MESSAGES, and rename/delete the following files:
scim.mo
scim-tables.mo
After that, you shoud see English menu.

By the way, this Chinese input PET package is only tested under 2.17. I am not
sure it will work on 3.00. Puppy Linux 3.00 has newer kernel.
