Dev:i18n Xft Patch
Hello all developers,
I am glad to share my efforts to get Amsn working on enhanced Tcl/Tk with i18n/Xft patches. The effect is pretty well, and I package it as a simple shell script. Here are my instructions:
1. create a new directory
# mkdir tmp # cd tmp
2. fetch shell script
3. for convenience, I suggest to be root to execute script
# sudo su # sh build-tcl.sh
4. patch aMSN to adapt /opt/bin/wish8.3
# wget http://jserv.sayya.org/tcl-i18n/amsn-0.91-fix-path.diff # cd amsn-0.91 # patch -p1 < ../amsn-0.91-fix-path.diff
5. Launch aMSN
If you prefer Traditional Chinese as your language, I recommend to install ukai/uming Unicode font contributed by Arne, and change the settings in aMSN to adapt ukai/uming font.
Now, let's see how it look like:
I do hope my efforts will be useful to you, and feel free to redistribute this note to others needing more improvement on i18n and Xft support.
cheers, Jim Huang <jserv AT kaffe.org>
