    Default Application couldn't display language other than Chinese properly

    Hi everyone, I'm new to OpenSuse 11.2,
    I've choice English as "primary language" in language configuration in Yast, and have also installed Chinese as secondary language.

    In most programs Chinese displays normally, like Evolution, Firefox, Dolphin, but in VLC media player and some other applications, Chinese couldn't be displayed properly.

    Could anyone tell me what should I do to solve this problem?
    Many thanks!

    How do you mean it isn't displayed correctly?
    Doesn't it fit in the buttons?
    Are they mixed with another language?

    And could you tell us if you use KDE or GNOME?

    Good luck!

    I want to try it myself, but I found two chinese:

    • Simplified Chinese
    • Traditional Chinese

    Could you tell us which one you've chosen?

    And did this happen after you installed openSUSE or did it suddenly appear?

    Good luck!

    Set Chinese as the primary language in Systemsettings - Country....., check that all settings, incl. keyboard ones, point to chinese.

    if I change my primary language into Simplified Chinese, do all applications display Chinese interface instead of English?

    Cause I often demo some softwares to my classmates.. I study in Melbourne.

    Thank you!

    If the application supports Chinese then it will show the text in Chinese.
    But some applications don't have a Chinese translation.

    Good luck!
