We sun SunOS 5.8/Solaris 8.
I am having trouble with local fonts and the word from the local dealership is that Sun never was really interested in localisation, hence our problems. Furthermore, they say that especially for Solaris -probably- there's no solution at all.
- For language support for Netscape, they suggested Mozzila+patches (of a total size of 100MB!).
- For general Solaris fonts, is seems that there is no solution. So I didn't need to ask about keyboard support...
Our system runs Oracle 9 with tons of local language data (charset iso-8859-7 (Greek)). I am building a series of Java (Swing) applications which we would like to run on the machine itself. Ideally, we would like to use common TT fonts.
Any ideas are welcome.
