Solaris Common Desktop Environment: Advanced User's and System Administrator's Guide

Login Locale and Font Path

You select the preferred language when you log in to Solaris CDE. The following Solaris CDE login screen shows the Language choice on the Options menu.


On workstations, font paths are automatically set to include fonts (and aliases) associated with both the preferred language and the system's base “C” locale. For Xterminals, these fonts are automatically supplied by an X11 font server.
