Korean Fonts

Six typefaces of Korean scalable and bitmap fonts are provided in the Korean Solaris software:

Kodig and Myeongjo contain Korean characters in accord with the KS C 5601 and KS C 5700 standards. Gothic is an alias of Kodig, and Myeongjo is an alias of Myeongjo.

Korean Solaris software includes bitmap and scalable Korean fonts under the /usr/openwin/lib/locale/ko/X11/fonts and /usr/openwin/lib/locale/ko.UTF-8/X11/font directories.

You can use X Font Displayer (xfd) to view a Korean font, for example:


system% xfd -fn kodig-medium14

The xfd(1) man page provides more information.

All Korean fonts have XLFD font names, and you can use the xlsfonts utility to display these names, as in the following example:


system% xlsfonts | grep kodig
