That's what I thought, because we haven't translated any of the menus yet,
so I can't see why you would see Chinese in any of those menus. :-)

Hehe. :-) See, I told you, the Chinese support in potato/woody isn't all
that bad, is it? (if the users already know GNU/Linux and X11. :-)
(Of course, most of the credits go to the *.po files translators, and to the
people who contributed zh_CN.GB2312 and zh_TW.Big5 locales. :-)
The GB po files are probably in:
As for screen capture software, try xwd (from the xbase-clients package).
I think GIMP may do screen capture too. I can't remember.
Anyhow, if you have got any great screenshots showing off the Chinese
support in Debian, please do so, and let me know where I may download it (or
just e-mail it too me if your files aren't too big). We'll put it up on the
Debian Chinese Project home page. :-)
You could try this:
$ sleep 10s; xwd -root -out /tmp/screenshot.xwd
then arrange your window within 10 seconds, and the screenshot will be
taken. To look at the picture, use "xwud -in /tmp/screenshot.xwd". Don't
send me the *.xwd file though! Use e.g.
convert -quality 100 screenshot.xwd screenshot.png
(convert is from imagemagick). On second thought, if GIMP supports it, it
may be easier to do it from GIMP. :-)
> That is why I ask you i don't see big5 charactor in menu when I export
Just in case you missed what I said last time: There is no zh_CN.Big5
locale. Use zh_TW.Big5 instead. Big5 is not used in the Mainland China.
