I have gone through several guides, and I still have difficulty getting simplified Chinese script to appear correctly in all my applications.

All the letters appear in my internet browser, but in individual programmes, only traditional letters appear correctly. Also some other unicode letters used in writing pinyin do not appear properly.

I run ubuntu in Japanese, but I would really like for my chinese programmes to work as well. Guessing which letter should've shown up is annoying and slows down my reading.

Does anybody have any advice?

Thank you m(_ _)m
