Korean Solaris User's Guide

Starting Applications With a Specific Korean (ko or ko.UTF-8) Font List

When you start an Asian Solaris tool at the command line, you can also specify its fonts. Below is an example of a command line argument used to start a new Korean terminal with a specified font list:

system% dtterm -fn \
    -dt-interface system-medium-r-normal-s sans-14-120-75-75-p-60-ksc5636-0;\
    -dt-interface system-medium-r-normal-s sans-14-120-75-75-p-120-ksc5601.1987-0:

Note the two delimiters used in the font list. The ; delimiter is used to separate the font names except for the last font name, which ends with the : delimiter. (In the example above, ; follows the Korean font name.) Since there are spaces in long font names, the font list is enclosed in quotation marks.

Specifying Font on Command Lines

A command line that starts a Korean OpenWindows application can specify the application's font. When the current locale is Korean, the command uses one of the defined font-set aliases instead (explained in the following section), for example:

system% cmdtool -font fontset_name &

But when the current locale is C the command uses a font name and cannot use a font-set alias. The following shows a command using the long name of an ASCII character font:

system% cmdtool \
    -font -misc-fixed-medium-r-normal--9-80-100-100-c-60-iso8859-1 &

Font Set Names

Korean Solaris software provides several font sets that combine two or more fonts so both English and Korean characters can be used together in one window. Some font sets comprise an English font plus a Korean font, both specified in KS C 5601. For easy use several of these font sets have simple names as follows:

The $OPENWINHOME/lib/locale/ko/OW_FONT_SETS/OpenWindows.fs file also sets the following font size definitions for use in command lines:
