An alternative method is to start up tkgate using the "-L ??" switch where "??" is the two character code for the language.
Special instructions for Japanese: Japanese is now supported only using tcl/tk 8.3 or later. It may still be possible to use tcl/tk 8.0jp but this is no longer recommended. To obtain Japanese support it is necessary to change the config.h file. Set the value of TKGATE_LANG in this file to "ujp". You will then need to run the configure script and recompile.
To use the Japanese support, it is necessary to install and run kinput2 and to set several environment variables. Then make sure that the LANG environment variable is set to a fully specified locale such as "ja_JP.EUC", and that the enviornment variable XMODIFIERS is set to "@im=kinput2". To create and edit Japanese comments, you can then type "Ctl-O" to toggle the kinput2 window while editing a comment.
Other Languages: If your native language is not one of the languages listed above, donations of additional language files are appreciated.
