Unicode printing

Hi, this is sort of a newbie question, so I'd appreciate any
appropriate references to look for:

I've started using Yudit for typing unicode documents,
including Japanese.  I'm presently trying to figure out
how to get the kinput2 system working properly for
entering kanji (the kana work fine).

But the biggest problem is how to print.  The Yudit
documentation mentions using True Type fonts like
"Bitstream Cyberbit," claiming that these can be
downloaded, but in fact, Bitstream has apparently
pulled the font off the web (they sell it now).
The other fonts I can find are apparently only 
western languages subsets.

I'd be happy just finding a way to print using the
Gnu Unifont (an X11 font) which I'm currently using
for on-screen editing.  Is there a filter utility that
I can use to just print the unicode document? (Yudit
can handle different encodings, but I suppose UTF-8
is what I'll be using).

Also, I'm trying to set up the Debian kinput2-canna
and canna server packages to work with Yudit.  Does
anybody else have experience with these?  Do they work
well?  I haven't figured out how to trigger kanji
substitution requests, yet.  I assume you do something
after you type in the kana.

Thanks in advance for any help!
