Re: Japanese Display for gtk+-1.2.9

So does it mean that our X-server is capable of displaying japanese fonts???

When we tried to rename the /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts from the FRV which is accessing the host PCs dillo application using x-server of FRV, dillo can display japanese fonts. So Mr Tor has a point that it is not using the font accessing of our X-server target.

I am also suspecting the installation of gtk in our target. I already installed gettext and it detects it. but still it can't display japanese.

I also found out in our config.cache file of cross compiled gtk package which contains

While in PC side. this option was set to yes.  If you have any idea about this, does it affect gtk's font access???

About message catalog, is found at our $PREFIX/share/locale/ja/LC_MESSAGES directory and also, gettext is installed at the same prefix (PREFIX=/opt/gtk-dillo).

The X server is what directly controls the display in question.

I don't know what "dillo" is, but...

It uses GTK on the machine where it runs, i.e . the "host PC". If it
uses GTK 1.2, it uses server-side fonts only (i.e., fonts accessed by
the X server running on the "target"), as far as I know, but somebody
else should confirm this. Later GTK and Pango versions use client-side

You renamed which X11R6 directory, the one on the "host PC" or the
"target"? If you renamed the X11R6 directory on the "host PC", X
client software like dillo won't find their shared libraries.

Hmm, "x-server library" doesn't really mean anything. If you mean the
X11 and GTK shared libraries (typically,, etc),
then the dillo program uses the libraries from the same machine where
it runs. And the X server uses libraries on the machine where it
runs. The X server does not use many of libraries that X clients use,
especially not, and of course no GTK libraries either.
