Re: Updating chinese-t-desktop in tasksel for Wheezy.

Dear Yao, FourDollars and all Traditional Chinese users,

Thanks to confirm. The upstream is not dead.

The problem is not just be able to typing Chinese here. The tasksel
designs for normal users
who doesn't know how to install packages in debian.

So it would be nice to have an overview from nontechnical users' point
of view. which input
method are mostly user friendly and attractive for even non-debian users?

Everyone I've polled who has installed ibus for nontechnical users has
had to switch out ibus
due to its non-staleness and non-user-friendliness. Technical users
who want ibus or
whatever will have no difficulty installing it.

Which table do you mean here?

The comment says "seems openjdk needs this to display Chinese."
Can you please confirm which fonts are needed for display Chinese in openjdk?
