[Fwd: How do I get Japanese to print?]

Americanism: "Yankee Doodle do or die"
Sometimes, however, *I* think it is better to do nothing and just be.
If you push yourself to *do* always, then you may end up doing something
that will harm you, due to lack of meditation, silence, forethought.
The right action will eventually arise on its own if left undisturbed.

I installed all this. There was somewhat of a problem for installing xfs-xtt,
but I figured out what was not working... some "TrueType" directories were not
being created by install process, so I manually created them. It then installed

But still Japanese text will not print.
Also, when I installed the "wadalab-gothic" I got something that came up in
debconf (ncurses version) that asked a question, I assumed it was in Japanese,
but could not read it, as the characters were not displayed correctly on the
screen in my xterm. So I went with the default suggestion, and pressed enter for

I then tried to print Japanese Text using netscape, and it did not work. This
time instead of printing funny characters, it printed nothing by the graphics on
the web site. Even the English on the web site did not print.
