Re: Japanese fonts & input

Hi all,

All the problems with the Japanese Input
seem to have been resolved when I upgraded
to Mandrake7.2.

The kinput2 toggle switch (shift+space) is
working OK. The multibyte compatible vi
editor is pre-installed too.

Thanks for all the help and suggestions
BOti, Mike Fabian and Hiroo Yamagata.
