Can anyone help me figure out how to access a Chinese BBS under Mandrake Linux using Gnome?
I have installed Mandrake in Chinese, and I have Chinese displaying in a few different places. However, I can’t figure out how to do Chinese input under Xcin. How do I switch input methods? Can I use Hanyu Pinyin under Xcin?
Also, when I use GTelnet to log on to KKCity (bbs://bbs.kkcity.com.tw), the characters don’t show up right. They show as garbage, so apparently the client isn’t recognizing them as Big5. How do I set this? I’ve already set the font as Fixed (Taipei), but it still doesn’t show up right.
I have used PuTTy under Win98 and the characters showed up just fine. I couldn’t find a way to do Chinese input, however, so I’m trying Mandrake instead. I own TwinBridge for Windows, but there are many, many programs that it doesn’t work under, and PuTTy is one of them.
Please help if you can, and thanks in advance for doing so…
