Thanks for the replies.
After more experimenting, I found a solution to the problem.
1. set the locale-gen to contain "zh_CN.UTF-8"
2. set "export LC_ALL=zh_CN.UTF-8" in ~/.bashrc
3. to copy Chinese from Emacs to Klipper, evaluate
4. to copy Chinese from KDE apps to emacs, evaluate
This is really perplexing and tedious that one has to change the
"selection-coding-system" variable in Emacs in order to copy to KDE apps and
Maybe there is a better approach.
