I was wondering if it is possible to read Russian on the Zaurus?
Is there a Russian keyboard? Can I install Russian input? I use Russian -Phonetic on my Macintosh.
Is there a translated to Russian pdaXrom available somewhere?

Sorry for asking so many questions, but if it could do Russian it would be awesome cool.gif

Thanks/.

Dima! I don't get it wink.gif
mb-applet-keymap-russian allows you to TYPE (just add applet to panel). You have nothing to do to READ russian (it works out-of-box).
good luck!

Have you ever tried to read Russian in rxvt-unicode?

If you are using unicode fonts, cyrillic letters are read in rxvt-unicode smile.gif

How do you specify which font to use in rxvt-unicode, I've tried the command-line option, but always fail. Can you type specifically how you launch it - the exact command?

I'm very sorry, but I'm an absolute idiot. Could someone help me with setting up russian in any b

ook reader, so that I could read cyriilic plain text? As I understood after reading forums etc. I need some ipk packages with fonts, but all the links were at fault or led to cacko pages.
So could someone post a working link to such a package and/or in details explain to me how to activate needed codepage.
And actually Zaurus is my only computer, so any conversions on desktop are hardly possible for me.
P.S. My model is C3000, OS - pdaXii13 for C3000.
thanks.
