Hi all,

on these systems, getting all the default fonts and input methods would also be
a big plus.  For the moment we are years behind other systems such as Mac OS,
where at any time it is possible to switch language or browse a website in a
language that is not the default one of the session.

In contrast, this is what "apt-cache search japanese default font" returns:

    printer-driver-cjet - printer driver for Canon LBP laser printers
    fbterm - A fast framebuffer based terminal emulator for Linux
    fonts-umeplus - Japanese TrueType gothic fonts, based on Umefont and M+Font

and for Chinese:

    fbterm - A fast framebuffer based terminal emulator for Linux

(and nothing for Korean.)

By the way, we already had a similar thread earlier.


Would it be OK to have one tasksel metapackage that installs all the
other localisation metapackages from tasksel ?

Have a nice day,
