These days, I am trying to write a crossplatform tools (https://sourceforge.net/projects/bloghub) using JAVA, on a Kubuntu laptop. Although I expected that Linux JAVA chinese support could be much better than 5 years, when I use JAVA to do development, I am so disappointed that my JAVA system just show all Chinese characters as blank boxes.
Fortunately, the solution is quite simple:
- Search where is your system chinese fonts are, e.g., I use simhei&simsun from M$, at /usr/local/share/fonts.
- cd $JAVA_HOME/jre/lib/fonts
- ln -s /usr/local/share/fonts fallback
