Full Version: Non-english Text. How?
OESF Portables Forum > General Forums > General Discussion

I have no problem to read non-english text using windows or Suse9.1 (cyrillic, encoding cp 1251 )
I really want to know how to read it using Zaurus. I searched the forums but couldn't find any useful info.

Thanks,

If you want to read the text file, use opie-reader or justreader.

Well, the problem solved by installing cyrillic font...
Opera and text editors recognize it now.
The most diffical part was to find cyrillic font which works on SL-6000.
Olad
it would be nice if you would post where you found the font. smile.gif Thanks.
lgurevich
I have the fonts, but I don't remember where I found it.

This one works for me:
http://zaurus.spy.org/feeds/docs-zaurus-co...s_0.5.0_arm.ipk
gfdsa
had some headache with cyrillic too, tried different font ipks, including the onse from narod.ru guy, but nothing worked good enough, especially rotation issues where terrible, but http://zaurus.spy.org/feeds/docs-zaurus-co...s_0.5.0_arm.ipk
works just great

The cyrillic fonts are on the Cacko feed:

http://cacko.biz/cacko/feed/qtopia-cyrilli...1.0.0-1_arm.ipk
http://cacko.biz/cacko/feed/qtopia-cyrilli..._3.1x-1_arm.ipk

Don't know if you got the fonts from the feed.

Hope this helps.
stupkid
Oh, you may also want to try the unifont package:

http://cacko.biz/cacko/feed/unifont_1.0-1_arm.ipk

For displaying bi-di and other characters.

I have installed the unifont package (I am using OZ 3.5.2), and cyrillic now displays properly in zbedic, but I still get those annoying blocks instead of cyrillic on the virtual keyboard.
Any suggestions?

Thanks

You need to find a font, which replaces helvetica font. Or select your installed Unifont as default in Launcher.
systemparadox
OK, selecting unifont as the launcher font has fixed the keyboard problem (I did try before, but it didn't seem to work), but the only unifonts I can find are size 16! I use sizes between 6 and 10 (prefferably 7)- 16 is stupid- especially for a 320x240 screen.

Anyone know where I can find a smaller unifont?

Thanks
Simon

That is the only unicode font that I know of for the Zaurus. Perhaps someone else out there knows of another.
maslovsky
Cyrillic fonts in Cacko feed are unicode too, but they don't work anymore with latest OZ for some reason...

To view spanish documents and web pages (with accents: à è é,....) what I have to do? And to type it with the keyboard?

Thanks in advance.

PD: I've got Cacko 1.22a

Doesn't opera display such documents properly?
To type in Spanish you need to create a Spanish keymap - look into /home/zaurus/Application/cyrillica, you'll find a few existing keymaps/which you can use as a base

PS; Submit your keymap when you're finished and we7ll include it inROM update smile.gif

With Opera there is no problem, I can see all that chars. Also with Hancomm I can see it ok.
But with netfront, texteditor,zeditor or using the more command the spanish chars are displayed as an empty square.

I'll try to modify a keymap. But that's only for the input and not for the display, that's right?

Thanks.
PD:Excuse for my english.

Sorry, but many apps have limited support for non-latin characters. I have to use UTF-8 text myself for cyrillic files...

Yes

I've done a keyboard config file with the catalan characters. Now I'm trying to paint/find a flag for my language. Maslowksy, where do you get all the flags for the keyboard layouts (french,uk,..)?? Are manually painted?

Thanks in advance.
