[Solved] Acer Aspire One Japanese Language

Postby matteometto » Tue Nov 18, 2008 4:58 pm

Hi everyone, I just bought the ACER Aspire One A110L with 1024RAM, Linux, and OpenOffice 2.3. I can find all sorts of Chinese Languages pre-installed but Japanese. What do I have to do for installing Japanese?
I have to say that I have no internet access with the Aspire one. I use the internet on a different computer.
Thanks a lot for helping me out.

I have Open Office v3.0 installed, so I don't whether or not there is any difference in regards to Japanese fonts (I also tested on v2.4 and was just as easy).

  • Tools->Options->Locale Setting->Japanese
  • Default Language for documents->Asian->Japanese
  • Make sure you have Japanese input enabled for your OS and it should just work.

Thank you for your quick response. And sorry for my late reaction.
After having found out that the pre-installed Linpus Linux would never be able to write in Japanese I installed Ubuntu 8.10 aka Intrepid Ibex. On the net I found a very helpful step by step guide on how to install the Japanese Language and Fonts by ruykent which I followed successfully. For my E-Mail program Thunderbird I installed a very useful add-on called Moji in order to enable it to translate highlighted Kanjis from e.g. a homepage or a mail.

Download the language pack for the desired language and correct for your version of OpenOffice. Language packs are version specific.
Apache OpenOffice 4.1.7 on Xubuntu 18.04.3 (mostly 64 bit version) and very infrequently on Win2K/XP
