Hi,

1. How do I make my computer able to view Chinese characters?

2. How do I make my computer able to input Chinese characters?

I am a beginner; know very little Chinese characters. So the options or settings has to be in English. So I know what I am setting.

Thanks in advance.

By the way, Happy Chinese New Year!

1. Using what apps?
2. You can use scim or fcitx. Their latest versions are fine under gentoo linux, both x86 and ppc versions.

1. emerge arphicfonts
2. emerge scim, (skim if you prefer KDE) and then emerge a inputmethod you want to use (probably scim-pinyin/scim-chinese is what you want)

Cyberian-ZH, please read this thread, may it more or less helpful to you :)

Displaying/inputting Chinese are the most frequently asked questions, I'm going to write some small howto once I have time...
