    Asian Fonts Pack for Ubuntu 10.04

    BigBaka

      Does anyone know if / where is the Asian Fonts Pack for Reader 9.3.2. I'm using Reader on Ubuntu 10.04 but it cannot read Japanese fonts. Any japanese document I open comes up blank.

       

      Cheers

          hi,

           

          Try installing it from here(japanese fontpack)

          http://activecontent.org/support/downloads/detail.jsp?ftpID=4424

           

          Thanks

            Hi Mayank,  Thanks for the tip. Alas, I downloaded the font back but it was for Adobe Reader 9.1 and although it seemed to install, (by running the install file through terminal), it said that it was designed for Reader 9.1, and actually I still cannot read japanese fonts in reader. Is there a font pack for Reader 9.3.2? Why is it so difficult to find anything in the Adobe website. It seems there are no links to anything to allow browsing.  Regards, BB

              Hi,

               

              The supported font pack is for minimum version 9.1 and onwards and it should technically work for 9.3.2 as well.


              Please follow the following steps :

               

              1) Download the tar file.

              2) extract the contents of the file using tar -xvf FontPack910_jpn_i486-linux.tar.bz2

              3) A folder named JPKNIT will be created.Now do JPKNIT/INSTALL from command line

              4) press "y" to continue installation.

              5) Type "accept"

              6) Enter the directory where you installed Adobe reader 9.3.2. For eg . if you installed in /home/$user/9.3.2/Adobe/Reader9/../..

                  then enter /home/$user/9.3.2

              7) After it installs successfully, try opening your pdf.

               

               

              I hope this works.You can also use ftp://ftp.adobe.com/pub/adobe/reader/unix/9.x/9.1/misc/  to download other asian font packs

                Hey,  I unpacked the language kit no problem.

                 

                Tried  to install as you suggested but didn't work. Looks like a permissions  issue. Do I need to put something before hand with that install command?  It seems as though Adobe is automatically installed into /opt so put  this as my install location.

                 

                My terminal readout is  below.

                 

                Cheers

                  Hi BB,

                   

                  Did you install Reader as a su by any chance? If yes, you will need to install the fontpacks too with the same priveleges.

                   

                  Thanks

                    Hi Atanu,

                     

                    Actually, I downloaded the deb file for 9.3.2 from the Adobe website and then just installed from that, so I'm not sure how it installs. Sorry, I'm also pretty new at Linux, so if you have any code suggestions to try, please write the full code so I can paste into terminal.

                     

                    Thanks

                      since you installed a deb file you must have installed it as a sudo using "dpkg -i" I presume.

                      Hence, you should do the following:

                       

                      sudo ./JPNKIT/INSTALL

                       

                      Thanks

                      Atanu

                        Thanks again Atanu,

                         

                        You were right, with the sudo command the font pack installed, however, I still can't see my Japanese fonts in the pdf file and still get a warning to download the font pack etc when I open a Japanese document. Seems like the 9.1 font pack simply doesn't work. I've also been watching a simiilar discussion over on the Ubuntu forums http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=9284215#post9284215 and it seems someone over there got it working via another install file, so I might give that a go instead.

                          Hi,

                           

                          I think this forum tells you to install japanese version of Adobe Reader application and not fontpacks.

                          Can you share the pdf with us if possible so that we can triage the exact problem?

                            Dear all,

                             

                            Still no luck I'm afraid. Tried the suggestion on the Ubuntu forum, and tried several different reader options in synaptic with and without the 9.1 fontpack, but still I'm getting the same error message and no Japanese fonts. Have posted my file onto the Ubuntu forum link here

                            http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=9287101#post9287101

                            See if you can get it working. It's not just this file that I can't get working. It's almost all of my Japanese pdf files.

                             

                            I have to say this is beginning to get a bit ridiculous. Shouldn't Adobe have all this sort of stuff down by the time they are at version 9? Actually I had similar problems with the previous Ubuntu 8.10 LTS and ended up installing version 8 of reader, but that had a bug in it that I found incredibly irritating in that I couldn't scroll up by clicking on the up arrow on the scoll bar. So I'm desperately trying to avoid reader version 8 this time around, but it is beginning to seem that nothing has changed in a year and a half.

                             

                            Anyway, if you can get anything out of this file please let me know.

                              So perhaps I am slowly getting somewhere.

                               

                              Some of my Japanese pdf's I can read after going into synaptic and installing

                              adobereader-deu

                              gs-cjk-resource

                              cmap-adobe-japan2

                              cmap-adobe-japan1

                              dvi2ps-fontdata-three

                               

                              But still there are some files that I cannot see the font. I looked on a PC and it seems that maybe the problem is with a font called MSPGothic and MSGothic. I remeber coming across a post before that mentioned this problem so perhaps I should search around for some other posts related to those particular fonts.

                               

                              In the meantime I'm also installing xpdf as an alternative to Adobe Reader. They have a Japanese font pack that can be installed through synaptic. Will see if that program can read my MSPGothic fonts, and keep this discussion updated.

                                Hi,

                                 

                                I was able to open your file. I think there is some problem with path of the font pack you are setting on linux or probably you have multiple reader installed on your system.

                                Can you try re installaing your Adobe Reader english version  from ftp://ftp.adobe.com/pub/adobe/reader/unix/9.x/9.3.2/enu/

                                Do the following steps :

                                 

                                1) Copy AdbeRdr9.3.2-1_i486linux_enu.bin to your Desktop

                                2)Create a directory on your Desktop named "9.3.2"

                                3) Install it from command prompt using sudo /home/"your user name"/Desktop/AdbeRdr9.3.2-1_i486linux_enu.bin

                                4) Provide the path /home/"your user name"/Desktop/9.3.2

                                5) after it installs succefully, install Japenese font packs from ftp://ftp.adobe.com/pub/adobe/reader/unix/9.x/9.1/misc/  as dicussed in previous steps and give path name as home/"your user name"/Desktop/9.3.2 {don't give path name as /opt}

                                6) Try opening the reader using /home/"your user name"/Desktop/9.3.2/Adobe/Reader9/bin/acroread

                                7) Try opening your pdf.

                                 

                                 

                                I hope it works.

                                  Downloaded the file to the Desktop, made the folder. At step 3 ran into problems. Think there is an unpack command missing. This was my terminal readout

                                   

                                  jvc@CF1:~$ sudo /home/jvc/Desktop/AdbeRdr9.3.2-1_i486linux_enu.bin

                                        So I used that chmod command and then was able to install Adobe into the 9.3.2 folder on the desktop. After that I correctly installed the previously downloaded JPN font pack 9.1 into the same folder on the desktop. I even made sure I was using the Adobe reader that I installed into the 9.3.2 folder, but still I can't read the handout 3 file. Are you really sure you were able to read both the pdf files posted on the Ubuntu forum? The Handout 3 file in post #7 is the one I cannot read, although I can now read handout 1 file in post #6.

                                         

                                        Interestingly the xpdf viewier was able to read the handout 3 file without any problems after I loaded the japanese font pack up from synaptic. Unfortunately the layout of Japanese fonts in xpdf is not very neat and so I don't really want to use it entirely, but if Adobe Reader can't read these MSP Gothic files, then I might just have to have xpdf as a backup for when Adobe Reader doesn't work.

                                         

                                        I'm pretty much at wits end now. Can't find anything online about installing MSP Gothic fonts into reader, so not sure what to do. Unless anyone has any other ideas I might just go back to the 9.3.2 deb file, and live with an inferior Adobe product with xpdf viewer as a backup.

                                         

                                        Could you please advise how to remove Adobe Reader that I've now installed on the desktop through that bin file?

                                         

                                        Also, when I download software I usually use a i386, not an i486 installation file? I noticed the downloaded bin file was an i486. Does that make a difference?

                                          Yes we are able to see both the pdf's correctly.

                                           

                                           

                                           

                                          Can you first ensure that you are launching the correct instance of acroread ( i.e. you are launching the one to which you actually installed the font packs). If you are launching the correct one, it may also be possible that your older instance was already running and would be brought back to front. Please use ps command ( ps -ef or ps ax ) to ascertain this.

                                           

                                           

                                           

                                          Do following steps

                                           

                                          1)    Run ps ax , and find out if there is any current instance of acroread.

                                           

                                          2)    Close all the previous instances of acroread

                                           

                                          3)    Go to /9.3.2/Adobe/Reader9/bin/ . You may find out which version of acroread you are launching by doing `which acroread`

                                           

                                          5)    Now try to open the pdf.

                                           

                                           

                                           

                                          If this also does not help , then your Japanese font pack installation was not correct. But the way you described it appears that you have rightly installed the font pack.

                                            Also, I've pasted my installation readout for both the Reader and the JPNKIT. Seems like both installed properly to me, also I tried uninstalling everything related to reader by going to Synaptic and "completely removing" any adobe reader installations that I had previously installed. Also manually deleted the .adobe file in my home directory. Then tried the Desktop/9.3.2 installation again, and again I had exactly the same results. Still cannot read the Handout 3 file.

                                             

                                            Anyway, if you could give me some more detailed instructions about your previous post I would be grateful.

                                              Had another read of your post and figured that I probably needed to have reader running with my unreadable file when I did the ps ax command. Ran it again and got the output below. Right at the bottom I could see Reader running out of the 9.3.2. However, I also ran the "which acroread" command as you suggested from inside the 9.3.2 directory, and it came up with the following.

                                               

                                              jvc@CF1:~/Desktop/9.3.2/Adobe/Reader9/bin$ which acroread
                                              /usr/bin/acroread

                                               

                                              Is that important?

                                                Hi,

                                                 

                                                When you do

                                                >> which acroread

                                                you get /usr/bin/acroread

                                                 

                                                Now try >> ls -l /usr/bin/acroread

                                                 

                                                This will tell you where this /usr/bin/acroread points to. If this points to /home/jvc/Desktop/9.3.2/Adobe/Reader9/bin/acroread then you are doing it right. Otherwise simply launch Adobe Reader from the folder on your Desktop.

                                                 

                                                Before this pls. make sure that THERE IS NO ACROREAD PROCESS already  RUNNING. You can check this by doing:

                                                 

                                                >> ps ax |  grep acroread

                                                 

                                                If there is any process running already then terminate it by

                                                >> pkill acroread

                                                 

                                                Again run above command to make sure that there is NO acroread process running.

                                                 

                                                Now launch Reader from your Desktop as

                                                 

                                                >> /home/jvc/Desktop/9.3.2/Adobe/Reader9/bin/acroread

                                                 

                                                Now if you have installed the fontpacks correctly on THIS Reader, PDF should be rendered correctly. Pls revert in case of any confusion.

                                                  got the following readout from the ls -l command

                                                   

                                                  jvc@CF1:~$ ls -l /usr/bin/acroread

                                                  So what does this mean?

                                                    With reader turned off I ran theps ax command, and got the following.

                                                     

                                                    Is this the process that I should kill using pkill acroread?

                                                     

                                                    jvc@CF1:~$ ps ax |  grep acroread

                                                          In Ubuntu, you have to run the script with

                                                           

                                                          sudo JPKNIT/INSTALL

                                                          or

                                                          cd JPKNIT

                                                          sudo ./INSTALL

                                                           

                                                          The correct install location on Ubuntu 10.04 when Adobe Reader has been installed from the Ubuntu repositories is /opt

                                                           

                                                          On my system, in step 6), /opt was already the default option so I just hit enter, so other than requiring sudo, these instructions work perfectly if you just hit enter for every step except 5 (where you just type accept and Enter)
