Here is what I've done so far:
(1) Downloaded the mlterm source tarball, and compiled
the package successfully,
tar zxvf mlterm-2.6.2.tar.gz
cd mlterm mlterm-2.6.2
./configure --prefix /usr/local --enable-anti-alias
(2) Then launch mlterm,
(3) In the mlterm window,
press C-M3 (Control-Right Mouse Key) to have mlterm
In the GUI window, I have
Encoding -- GB18030
X Input Method -- Chinput
XIM Local -- zh_CN.GB18030
However, mlterm still fails in displaying Chinese characters.
On my Red Hat 7.3 system, the locale zh_CN.GB18030 does
exist under /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/locale (lower case 'gb' but I've
tried to change 'GB' to 'gb' in the GUI window, and got the same
results). And my LANG env var is set to be zh_CN.GB19030
It seems mlterm more popular on Debian. What should I do
additional work for it on Red Hat?
Belive it's something to do with fonts files under mlterm-2.6.2/etc
aafont taafont tfont vfont font
Found no info on what they are and how to set them.
Appreciate if you can investigate this matter a little further,
which, I believe, would benefit many of us.
