mlterm for Debian
-----------------

In case mlterm does not start, check the following:

* mlterm needs kernel compiled with "Unix98 PTY support"
  (CONFIG_UNIX98_PTYS) and "/dev/pts file system for Unix98 PTYs"
  (CONFIG_DEVPTS_FS).

* mlterm needs a font for your locale.  If you don't have a font
  for your locale, please consider Unicode font and "-u" option.
  I recommend Debian packages of "unifont" and "xfonts-efont-unicode"
  for Unicode fonts.


Debian-specific font configuration:

* non-Unicode non-anti-alias fonts:

  - If you 8bit encodings other than ISO-8859-1, you may want to
    enable only_use_unicode_font in /etc/mlterm/main file, so that
    you don't need to install xfonts-*-transcoded packages.  Note
    that this may slow down the startup of mlterm because unicode
    fonts are 16bit and contain much more glyphs than 8bit fonts do.

* Unicode non-anti-alias fonts:

  - If you have installed 'xfonts-base' package, you will be able
    to use various sizes of fonts.

  - If you want to use doublewidth characters (CJK), install 'unifont'
    package for 16 pixels, or you can use 13 or 18 pixels with
    'xfonts-base' package.  'xfonts-efont-unicode' package is also
    available for 10, 12, 14, 16, and 24 pixels.

* Anti-alias fonts:

  - If you want to use anti-alias fonts, install the following package(s).
    - 'xfonts-scalable' for ISO-8859-1 (western Europeans without euro).
    - 'ttf-freefont' for ISO-8859-{2,3,4,5,7,9,10,13,14,15}
      (most of Europeans including Greek).
    - 't1-cyrillic' for KOI8-R and KOI8-U (Russian and Uklainian).
    - 'xfonts-scalable' and 'ttf-kochi-gothic' for EUC-JP (Japanese).
    - 'xfonts-scalable' and 'ttf-baekmuk' for EUC-KR (Korean).
    - 'xfonts-scalable' and 'ttf-arphic-bsmi00lp' for BIG5 
      (traditional Chinese).
    - 'xfonts-scalable' and 'ttf-arphic-gbsn00lp' for GB2312
      (simplified Chinese).
    - 'ttf-freefont' for UTF-8 singlewidth characters.  For UTF-8
      doublewidth characters (east Asian), please use one of
      ttf-{kochi-gothic,baekmuk,arphic-bsmi00lp,arphic-gbsn00lp}.

    mlterm uses Xft2 library instead of Xft library since version
    2.6.3.cvs20030220-1.  To register 'ttf-*' fonts or 'scalable-cyrfonts'
    to Xft2 (so that these fonts can be used from mlterm), execute
    'fc-cache' as a root user.

    Read fc-cache(1) and fontconfig(3) for detail.

    To use anti-alias font with EUC-KR, BIG5, and GB2312, you may want to
    edit /etc/mlterm/aafont file.  Read the file and you will find how to
    edit it.


* Configuration files:

  - Configuration files have changed since mlterm version 1.9.44.
    Please read the manpage for detail.


* Indic support:

  Though mlterm supports Indic scripts, this package is not compiled
  with Indic support enabled.  If you want to use Indic support, please
  read doc/en/README.iscii in the source package.
