    SLES 11 : Add Japanese Language


    Hi there

    I have been having problems with adding japanese language support on my
    SLES11 SP 1

    So far I have done the following:

    1. Added Japanese as my secondary language using
    yast2-->System-->Languages---> Primary Language set as English (US) and
    Secondary language set as Japanese

    2. Changed my Keyboard laytout using
    yast2--->System--->Hardware---Keyboard Configuration--->Japanese

    However, when I attempted to open files which I had scp'ed from windows
    (ANSI and UTF-8 encoded files) with japanese characters in it, all I got
    was garbled output:

    Code:
    --------------------

    my-mnag0:/tmp # cat jptest-utf8.txt
    良い朝my-mnag0:/tmp # cat jptest.txt
    oD0gmy-mnag0:/tmp #
    --------------------


    I am not sure how to go on, I Googled and for most people it worked
    after the keyboard layout was changed. Do I need to reboot for the
    change to take affect?

    So I am attempting to do these things:

    1. System to be able to read Japanese language files
    2. On the other hand, we have Nagios installed on this server and the
    system's inability to read Japanese is causing the decade alerts emailed
    to clients come out in garbled texts

    Please help, I am kind of lost here.

    Hi
    What is the env output for lang?
    Code:
    env |grep LANG
    locale
    You may need to set the LANG for the nagios environment.

    how do i change my nagios language environment?

    do i have to add it in the .fonts folder? as of now its empty


    Code:
    --------------------
    my-mnag0:/usr/local/nagios/.fonts # ll

    Hi
    I would look at using nagios from the SLE SDK, it probably has better
    integration as well as updates?

    You can download the SLE SDK iso image and add via yaST add on products
    it will add the online and update repositories as well.

    You need to change from posix to utf-8 for the characters to work I
    would guess.
