Japanese language support

minimal setup for Japanese input
If you want to setup the minimal facility to read and write Japanese text, without using the scripts:
as root:
apt-get update
apt-get install ttf-kochi-gothic 
apt-get install im-switch ibus-anthy ibus-qt4 ibus-gtk
im-switch -s ibus

optionally, you can set up the ibus
as user, in console on X windows:

Enable starting of the daemon
Input Method -> Choose Japanese and then add
Advanced -> "Share the same input method among all applications"

You need the locale ja_JP.UTF-8. No need to make it default. If you don't have it yet, add it from command as root
dpkg-reconfigure locales

The procedure of Install

(a) Pressing F4 at the grub menu screen at start up of LiveCD?/DVD, you see the menu to chose default language. If you chose Japanese, ja_JP.UTF-8 will be the default locale, and also keyboard map is set to be Japanese layout. (You can change it to US layout, by pressing icon on the right bottom of KDE).
The same effect is by writing lang=ja_JP as cheatcode.
If you give lang=ja_US as cheatcode, keyboard layout will be US.
You can do localisation to Japanese without any cheatcode. 3.option of meta-package will change ja_JP.UTF-8 to be your default locale. Installation

- If your aime is localisation of installed system on a HD, there is no need to do localisation in live mode. Install to HD first, then after booting from the new syetem, do the following. If you want to set Japanese localisation in live-mode, you can do with the same procedure.

(b) If you use DHCP, or your WLAN setting is done automatically, you are already connected to Internet. Otherwise, set the connection to Internet first, using Ceni, etc.

(c) aptosid's iso has a lot of locale installed, so the update of package may take a while. You can reduce the install time of locale related packages with:
# dpkg-reconfigure locales

and removing locales you don't need.
(If you are setting up Japanese input, please keep en_US.UTF-8 and ja_JP.UTF-8. If you chose 'None' as the default locale, Japanese Input may not work. Please chose one locale for system default.

(d) You execute the scripts here
- if you install to HD after installing Japanese Language support, the packages for it are installed on HD, but not all config files are automatically copied. So please do (e) and/or (f) on the newly installed system after booting.

tip to use fromiso + persist

In case if you need Live-mode in Japanese frequently, there is a good trick.
Prepare a USB flash memory stick bigger than 500MB.
Start the 'Install to USB' from the installer, or from menu.
As a cheatcodes option write
 lang=ja_JP  persist 

(please read fromiso+persist section in the manual.)

After the installation to USB is finished, boot from this USB stick, and run Japanese Language support scripts.
From next boot you have Japanese enabled live-mode system.
