Are you looking for ttf fonts? There are multiple fonts in Debian already: * ttf-arphic-uming, ttf-arphic-ukai: Chinese (Big5, GB2312, HKSCS2004), (Most recent testing version is on apt.debian.org.tw, more CJK characters to come (GBK, Japanese, Korean)) * ttf-sazanami-*: Japanese * ttf-unfonts: Korean Afaik, there is no DFSG free font which covers all of those characters, yet, but I'm working on it. :) The Cyberbit font has wrong codepoints assigned to the Hangul syllables (CJK Ext.A instead of their original position and not even complete, AFAIK) and therefor is buggy. -- Arne Götje (高盛華) <email@example.com> (Spam catcher.
