Korean Language on Breezy, post Dapper / Ubuntu 6.02 this is no longer needed

February 11th, 2006

Firstly full kudos need to go to these guys; http://rx78gd.egloos.com/m2005-11-01 if you can read Korean this site is a really good source of brezzy howtos; here it is verbatim from the above site;

1.나비를 설치한다.

$ sudo apt-get install nabi

2. 디렉토리에 sudo vi .gnomerc 하여 아래와 같이 입력했다.

export LANG=ko_KR.UTF-8
export LC_ALL=ko_KR.UTF-8
export XMODIFIERS="@im=nabi"
export GTK_IM_MODULE=hangul3f
export GDK_USE_XFT=1
nabi &

3. $ sudo dpkg-reconfigure locales

4. 이곳에서 영문메뉴에서 입력만 한글로 사용할려면 en_US.UTF-8 UTF-8 를 선택하고, 모든 메뉴를 한글로 할려면 ko_KR.EUC-KR EUC-KR, ko_KR.UTF-8 UTF-8 를 선택한다.

5. 재부팅...^^

재부팅하고나면 나비가 뜰것이다. 이후 간단한 설정만 해주면 잘 나온다.

자세한 것은 https://wiki.ubuntu.com/KoreanSetupH...=%28korean%29/ 를 참고했다.


If you can’t read Korean this is how i have done it;

1) You don’t really need all of these but it will give you all of the Korean goodies

sudo apt-get install language-pack-gnome-ko language-pack-gnome-ko-base language-pack-ko language-pack-ko-base language-support-ko mozilla-firefox-locale-ko nabi openoffice.org2-help-ko openoffice.org2-l10n-ko ttf-alee ttf-unfonts xfonts-baekmuk

2) Sort out your locals

sudo nano /etc/locale.gen edit it to look like this & save it

en_US.UTF-8 UTF-8
ko_KR.UTF-8 UTF-8
ko_KR.EUC-KR EUC-KR

then run

sudo locale-gen

3) in the home directory of each user you want to be able to input Korean you need to create a .gnomerc file

sudo nano .gnomerc

export LANG=ko_KR.UTF-8
export LC_ALL=ko_KR.UTF-8
export XMODIFIERS="@im=nabi"
export GTK_IM_MODULE=hangul3f
export GDK_USE_XFT=1

Save the file “ctrl o” then “ctrl x”

4) & then reboot login & select Korean for your language & you should have an all Korean desktop. Nabi will start automatically & you just need to press “shift + space bar” to swap between Korean & English input

The only unresolved issue i have is even if you select English for your language some stuff is still in Korean, date & time, firefox menus etc
