on Solaris 8.
I want to add Chinese font to VNC server so that
VNC can display Chinese chars correctly. But I can't
find the path for Chinese font,where is the chinese
font and how can i accomplish it?

VNC package for Solaris 8 at http://www.sunfreeware.com or mirror site.

Chinese fonts - need to install them from Solaris Languages CD.

Path is /usr/openwin/lib/locale/zh/X11/fonts/75dpi I think

Add font to vncserver startup script using the -fp option

vncserver ... -fp "$FP" ...

Add it to your environment with xset (you can do this in ~/.vnc/xstartup:
$ cat ~/.vnc/xstartup
xset +fp /usr/openwin/lib/locale/zh/X11/fonts/75dpi
