    How can I see, Pardus has a complete support for UTF-8. It's good, becouse solution of your problem is just to install new fonts.

    1. download this fonts: http://vinelinux.org/~daisuke/vlgoth...070507.tar.bz2
    2. unpack it to some folder
    3. add new line into the "Files" section in /etc/X11/xorg.conf:

    FontPath "full_path_to_new_fonts"

    for example:

    FontPath "/usr/share/fonts/truetype/vlgothic"

    4. reboot X-server (press Ctrl+Alt+Backspace)

    That's all! ^_^ If doesn't work, write about it to this forum.

    P.S. I use this fonts on Debian GNU/Linux 4.0 (pre-release) i386 and they works perfectly.
