Subject: Re: Does RHEL 4 support CJK (Chinese, Japanese and Korean)?
Yes and no. Let me explain.
While RHEL 4.x is capable of displaying CJK (Chinese, Japanese, and Korean) characters from the console, it is not possible to print them from the console. You can print these characters from an X desktop environment, such as Gnome.
When printing from the console, the file to be printed is filtered through the 'texttops' filter. Unfortunately, 'texttops' is not UTF-8 aware. This is where the UTF-8 encoding is getting lost. The files
need to be converted to Postscript so that it is passed through the proper filter before being sent to the printer.
Under RHEL 4 the utilities we have available
to convert this to Postscript, namely a2ps, are also not UTF-8 aware. We have to use the 'paps' filter to convert the file from UTF-8 to Postscript. Unfortunately, 'paps' is not available until RHEL 5.
If you want to print CJK characters under RHEL 4.x you will have to install X and a window manager such as Gnome and use gedit or Open Office to print the file.
