RE[2]: only problem is Chinese fonts

This is how I did it . I replaced XOrg-8.1 with
XFree4.5 which has ALL THE ASIAN FONTS enabled by
default.

This may be the ONLY reason to XFree over XOrg but in my book it's important enough to make the switch.

I hope XOrg gets it together..

you guys are really some strange kind... You can install XFree on your own, but installing some freaking fonts is such an issue?

Well, if you've got a quick and dirty solution, I'd love to hear it. I spent a lot of time trying to get Chinese fonts to install, but no luck. Read the forums, closely followed the advice, but no luck. I just wish Asian language fonts were enabled by default. Maybe less than 5% of Slack users need this, but hey, we exist.

I would still consider Slack for a server though.
