pfQuizzz: Linux - Chinese characters

Post by horker »

I am using pfQuizzz as a vocabulary trainer.
It runs from the USB-stick.
It runs in Linux Ubuntu without using WINE, the windows emulator.

using windows the Chinese character are displayed correctly.
But, using Ubuntu I do not get the Chinese characters!

Any ideas?
Thank you

Hi Horst,

I'm not very familiar with Linux and never tried to run pfQuizzz on Linux myself. However, from what you wrote it seems to me that the problem might be related to the default font that pfQuizzz uses for its dialogs (maybe the one on Ubuntu doesn't support Chinese characters by default). So I would suggest trying to change the dialog font.

It can be done by going to:
GoTo / Setup, and checking
[x] Use Custom Font

Then select:
Chose Custom Font
and try to find a font that supports Chinese characters
(You might also want to experiment a bit with the Script option)

Hope this helps,
