Japanese and English keyboard on 4.1.3?

Post by Per Gunna » Fri, 22 Nov 1996 04:00:00

What settings should be used for using an English keyboard
layout to input Japanese characters?

I would prefer to have English menus and error messages but
I would like to be able to input Japanese characters.

1. Japanese Solaris with English keyboard

As someone that has installed numerous copies of the Japanese
version of Solaris (2.5.1, 2.6, 7) on Sparc machines, I feel I can
answer 2 out of 3 of your questions.

1)  Yes.  It works without problem whatsoever.

2)  "rohmaji input" method is pretty much standard.  The keyset my have
kana written on them but almost all computers and word processor
machines support alphabet character input method.  In fact, I don't
know anyone that can input Japanese with anything OTHER than
romaji input.

3)  That, I can't answer.  I wouldn't mind getting rid of some of our
Japanese keyboards but I don't we'd be allowed to sell them.

One caveat I will make.  If you are used to US standard keyboard, use
that instead.  Using a Japanese keyboard under Unix in Japanese is
really anoying because a lot of the symbol characters e.g. * | _ ' etc
are in different places and it is REALLY annoying if you are a touch
typist on US keyboards.
