You need some Japanese vector fonts installed on your system, as Gtk+
(since version 2.0) only uses vector fonts. You have some in the
following packages :


You can also get the « Bitstream Cyberbit » truetype font
(cyberbit.ttf) somewhere on the internet (netscape website for example).

Just having one of those installed should do the trick (i prefer the
kochi-gothic which is easier to read). 

Anybody knows a good (free) japanese truetype font with normal & bold ?
