 Install Chinese Language support in Linux Mint Debian


Install Chinese Language support

# First install the Chinese language desktop environment, open a Terminal and type in:

sudo apt-get install  task-chinese-s-desktop

Note:

Accept all dependencies suggested by the system.


# Next you have to configure the locales, type in the Terminal:

sudo gedit /etc/locale.gen

and remove the “#” from the locale you want to use (don't forget to save). For Chinese language use one of the “zh_” locales.

Now type in the Terminal:

sudo locale-gen

# Restart computer and at the Login window choose Chinese language.

Note:

you can use ibus-pinyin to type Chinese characters instead of Scim. If you want to install ibus-pinyin open a Terminal and type in:

sudo apt-get install ibus-pinyin      (accept all dependencies suggested by the system)

not working for me either (LMDE 201403). It will eventually let set the system in Mandarin language but what I need is actually to be able to input chinese characters.. leaving the OS in English language. Is that possible? Even ibus doesn't help (just installed ibus and ibus-pinyin). Please also have a look here: http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=190&t=165275
Thanks

I follow the steps, but it does not work on the newest Linux Mint Debian (201403, Cinnamon, 64-bit). You can open the pinyin method, but it does not show any Chinese characters when typing something. There is no popup overlay.

And it works on the newest Linux Mint 16 Petra (Cinnamon, 64-bit), looks like a bug on Linux Mint Debian system.

Oh, really?
I have studied Chinese for two years in Beijing.
I hope you would reap a rich harvest from your study in China.

Thank you @Anleoje and @kazztan0325.
To install in other languages someone can follow this tutorial:
1)First install the desktop environment for that language, type in the Terminal:
# sudo apt-get install task-[language_name]-s-desktop (this should pull all dependencies, including LibreOffice and Firefox in that language)
2)Configure the locales:
# sudo gedit /etc/locale.gen (remove the "#" from the locale you want to use)
and then run:
# sudo locale-gen
3)Restart computer and at the Login window choose that language.

I promote this tutorial.
It would be helpful for Chinese users.

By the way...,
我很想知道您会不会讲中文。
