If you're using CUPS, did you compile CUPS with the "nls" use flag for Native Language Support?

Also, might want to make sure Mozilla/Firefox is compiled with "truetype" support and you have the appropriate fonts package installed.

At location: type "about:config", right click in the page, choose "New" --> "String", configure the following fields and see if it works:
Code:
font.FreeType2.enable      Value:true
font.FreeType2.printing    Value:true
font.FreeType2.unhinted    Value:false
font.directory.truetype.1  Value:/path/to/your/truetype/Chinese/fonts, e.g. /usr/share/fonts/ttf/zh_CN
font.directory.truetype.2  Value:/second/path/to/your/fonts

If I set font.FreeType2.printin= true, firefox segfault every time I try to print. Printing to printer or file doesn't matter. Print preview is fine though.

我的都设置对了,打印出来的还是方块。

中文打印是Linux的一个已知问题,目前还没有User Friendly的解决方案。

不明白Linux打印个东西怎么那么难,Windows只要装个驱动就行了。

That is because all the printer manufacturers spend time developing drivers only for Windows. :-(

You can try
Code:
revdep-rebuild


This may help you a little. My openoffice could not use chinese-ime in kde enviroment a couple of days ago. Everything is ok now after revdep-rebuild.
