Re: Chinese KDE on Debian 2.2

Thank you for the response. The version of KDE that I have is 1.1.2 and I
downloaded it from http://kde.tdyc.com
I have the correct locale setting, but when I change the language setting to
zh_TW.Big5, from the KDE control center, all the menus will display some
strange characters that I can't read. I don't know if it has to do with
missing fonts, or KDE is just having problem displaying multybyte, or maybe
I need to do some other configuration.
