Title: Japanese in Libreoffice
Post by: agusplastra on August 15, 2012, 11:39:49 pm
Hi,

I installed anthy for being able to write in Japanese. It works with firefox but when I type in Libreoffice, just empty boxes or strange symbols appears.
Any help?

Thanks in advance.

I had already configured libreoffice for asian languages and made the default for Japanese but still doesn't work. There seems to be a common problem for other users of different Linux distributions. I would appreciate any help. Thanks.

Ir works when I type Japanese in Firefox, for example, but not in libreoffice nor Chrome. I installed a bunch of fonts as indicated in the videotutorial. Where from can I get Japanese fonts?

Thanks in advance,

I will do that, but it is not only in Libreoffice, I cannot type Japanese in Google Chrome or Abiword, for example.
Is there some kind of community of Japanese users? Should I install the Japanese version for Libreoffice?

I haven't installed any particular Japanese font. I just installed the fonts recommended in the videotutorial. Can you tell me how to install some Japanese fonts?

Thanks for your help.
I followed the steps described here:

Can you please tell me where to download and how to install Japanese fonts?
Or, in the event that installing Japanese fonts will not solve the problem, how can I install the Japanese version of libreoffice to make it executable with vector linux?
