I have a problem with displaying japanese fonts in OmegaT-2.0.5 version for linux (I've downloaded package without JRE since I have it installed already).
I'm running ubuntu 9.04 32bit and I don't have any problems with displaying japanese fonts in browser or in any other program (including java apps). It's not only a problem with the files I import or load, I can't use japanese in any program's window (file's name for example).
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated....

Check the JRE and the font Oct 19, 2009

If you're not 100% sure the JRE you are using is Sun's JRE, you should try first the package with JRE.

I'm running ubuntu 9.04 32bit and I don't have any problems with displaying japanese fonts in browser or in any other program (including java apps). It's not only a problem with the files I import or load, I can't use japanese in any program's window (file's name for example).

Are you sure the font you use (in OmegaT) contains Japanese characters? It should not normally affect file names, but that's another thing to check.
Also, if you run OmegaT in Japanese (java -jar -Duser.language=ja OmegaT.jar), do the menus display correctly?

Solution for now: the older version Oct 22, 2009

Thanks for the reply:)
When I run OmegaT in Japanese, only the menus display correctly, source files dont display the right fonts. I've downloaded the older version (1.8) and everything there works just fine, so for now I'm going to use that one.
That's no real solution though, so I'm looking forward to hearing some other ideas.. Or maybe it's a bug that should be reported to the program developers?

You didn't answer my question:
Have you tried the new version with "Java included"?

Or maybe it's a bug that should be reported to the program developers?

As we do not have other reports, I doubt there's much we can do from within OmegaT (in case that's not obvious, I am one of the program developers). I recommend asking for help in the OmegaT Yahoo support group. There are more likely Ubuntu users in that group. You could try also the Linux for Translators group (also in Yahoo).
