When I start the OOs, I can input Chinese correctly unless I set export LC_CTYPE=zh_CN.UTF-8 before I fireup the oos.
Even I can input Chinese by this messy way, but when I save odf by Chinese filename, the filename is in UTF-8 encoding (and I can open the file with GBK encoding character as filename). I guess the OOS use UTF-8 as its default encoding, so my question is how to set the relevant parameters so that the OOs works fine?
you might try opening writer, going to tools;options;language settings;languages and click the box next to enabled for asian languages. then you can select between 5 variations of chinese, japanese or korean.
you may then need to make changes to default settings but i'm not sure.
