View Full Version : [ubuntu] Korean typeset on latex

March 16th, 2012, 06:18 PM
Hi there,

I have spent hours over the last few days trying to get latex to compile Korean/Hangul. I have Korean language installed on the laptop. I can switch easily between english/korean by pressing ctrl+space.

I have installed numerous latex korean packages. In latex preamble, I include \usepackage{hangul} or \usepackage{hfont}.

When I type in Korean, it compiles into Chinese(I think). I doesn't do this with any apparent consistency, one Korean letter might be two Chinese syllables.

Please someone help! I am using Ubuntu11.10, and use Gummi or Texmaker for latex.
