Hi,

I'm using Gentoo amd64, Desktop with Xfce4.

How do I add support for asian characters on it (probably UTF-16 and Unicode)?

Do you want the Xfce4 desktop in say japanese or only read and write japanese in Libreoffice, Thunderbird, Firefox, etc.?

Oh, it's been the fonts. I thought I need to install additional support for UTF-16 & Unicode.

Ok, thanks.

And which fonts would be for Japanese?
