Korean Solaris User's Guide

Introduction to OpenWindows

Design of Korean Solaris Software

This Korean localization of Sun's internationalized OpenWindows environment includes enhancements for handling appropriate linguistic and cultural conventions, which it provides to two broad working environments:

Expanded Workspace Properties Worksheet

The Localization category in the Workspace Properties worksheet lets you set the locale for applications to start up in. With this page you can set the Basic Setting, Display Language, Input Language, Numeric Format, and Time Format for new application windows from inside the Korean OpenWindows environment.

These settings take effect each time a local application starts up. Application windows are displayed in the currently set locale. After you change the locale, new application windows are displayed in the new locale, but existing application windows stay in the locale they originally started up in.

OpenWindows supports ko locale only. It does not support ko_KR.EUC, ko.UTF-8, or ko_KR.UTF-8 language selections.
