To view Asian characters from Xmanager

You may need to login Solaris from home, and also need remote Solaris desktop with Asian (JKCC) characters displayed like me who is working at Globalization team. Xmanager is a good choice.

The default Xmanager install package may not include all fonts that you need especially for Asian languages. You need to download the font package, install and set the font path for your language.

Here is a step by step example:

1. Go to Xmanager website to download the font package.
2. Install it to where your Xmanager located. (C:\\Program Files\\NetSarang\\Xmanager2\\Fonts)
3. Open Xconfig, and add your language to each config file from "Properties" -> "Font".

That's it.

Languages that we have

Last month I did a job to update l10n templates for converting docs to html format. It's not complicated, just translate 2 new strings and then add them to the templates for each language. Yes, Sun supports more and more languages for the docs. List here.
















Simplified Chinese

Traditional Chinese

Crystal Cup

It's my first time to involve in the Cup design. Very cool. Imagining the moment that the winner takes the cup, I can feel the satisfaction at it. To be honest, the Cup design is not the big part of the thing, the winner and their hard working for the whole year are just the most important.

It's the award for localization vendor. To recognize their good performance and communication in FY07. As well as to encourage them and the others to do better in the coming year. Because the Cup for FY08 must be bigger than this year's. :-)

All team members in AGC TLIS working together to make it happened. From program design to system analysis and test, from regular mark to final statistic, of course the Cup design. We even will have a ceremony in next week. This program has been processed in the last whole year. It's not easy, especially thank Jane Shi who drove it.

All contents are documented. For details, please contact AGC TLIS.

Search Capabilities Improved on

Today the engineering team has migrated its search capabilities from the existing search mechanism to the .Sun search standard - Sun Search.

The benefit of this move is:

  • Customers will now experience the same highly relevant results that are available on many other Sun web sites and applications, translating to an overall better user experience. 

To help provide a smooth transition to the new search functionality see the "New Search Methodology" on "What's new":


For me the most exciting thing about the improvement is DSC support multi-byte words or phrases search in this new 4.2.2 release.

Tip: Don't forget to switch to your local before you search non-English words.

Why we blog?

More and more Suner start to create their blogs to share information to other people. Before I created my blog, I asked a question to myself " Why do I blog?"

• To share personal information and feeling to others? It's OK.
• To track working / living record? Maybe.
• To share Sun (others) technology within / outside SMI? Yes, some of them.
• To build a bridge between Sun and worldwide user? - I created my blog.

I wrote a blog about new UI of was released early last week and got 1 comment, actually it's complaint. 3 days after the comment I found Sun engineers discussing the possible changes to within dsc alias. I am so happy with that. I know it's 99.99% possibility that there is no relation between my blog and changes discussing, but the most important thing is we found the blog is also a way to improve our company.

Linguistic l10n issue in SW UI on DELL laptop.

Yesterday when I started my DELL D620 only with battery, I could not find NIC (Network Interface Card) in this laptop. Then I found there is a software named DELL QuickSet. By default this sw will deactivate NIC when you use laptop with battery to save the power. You can set it to "always activate NIC when using battery". Now the funny thing is, we know we can translated activate as "激活" in SCH, but how about deactivate, "钝化", "取消激活", "禁用"?

See below to find DELL's translation.
