    I believe you need to install the locale for Japanese. Not sure how. but i would start on the Mandriva community page Probably an rpm install

    hi singying304 !!

    I take it you mean in a terminal window? Try specifying your font like
    this unicode font in the following example. If the Japanese font is not
    a Unicode encoding do no specify -u8.
    xterm -u8 -fn '-*-fixed-*-*-*-*-12-*-*-*-*-*-iso10646-1
    I have never actually displayed Japanese text in an English locale but I
    think this is all you would need to do (in addition to running the actual
    programs in the appropriate locale assuming they support the encoding).

    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
