Add Chinese Support


You can change language to Chinese in settings

More Setting –> Device Preferences –> Language –> 中文(简体)/中文(繁軆)


English is the default language of Ubuntu. Therefore, it can’t display Chinese Characters until you install the following packages:

$ sudo apt-get -y install language-pack-zh-* ttf-wqy-microhei language-pack-zh-han* ttf-wqy-zenhei fonts-droid-fallback

Install Font:

$ sudo apt-get -y install fonts-arphic-uming fonts-arphic-ukai

Setup Language:

$ sudo locale-gen "zh_CN.UTF-8"
$ export LC_ALL="zh_CN.utf8"
$ sudo update-locale LC_ALL="zh_CN.UTF-8" LANG="zh_CN.UTF-8" LC_MESSAGES=POSIX
$ sudo dpkg-reconfigure -f noninteractive locales
$ sudo reboot

Tip: After rebooting Ubuntu, you’ll see the OS in Chinese.
