    I tried to check for arphic-ukai-fonts and arphic-uming-fonts on my Virtual machine (linux) but don't appear to be there. I am using the following to check:
    zypper -n search arphic*
    rpm -qa | grep arphic

    which don't show the packages. Is there a way to check if I have those packages available to me on my linux system?

    thanks

    Hi Clare,

    I understood that the language pack did resolve your issue and that you no longer needed assistance. I apologize for the misunderstanding.

    I appreciate the follow-up. It will help others who might encounter this issue.
