I did do a search, and there were several that were similar to this, but nothing that was close enough to answer my question. My question is: I have installed Red Hat Linux (8) with support for Chinese characters. It works well, and all that is fine. But I have a GUI app that pulls in text from a .txt file and it should be displayed in Chinese as well. It appears to work for French and German and some of the others, but when I switch to Chinese, I get:
font specified in font.properties not found [tlc-song-medium-r-normal--*-%d-*-*-c-*-gbk-0] several times, and the text in the app that is supposed to be in Chinses is not. So, I know that the fonts are there because the desktop is using them fine, and I can see there is a file font.properties.zh that says it is the support for Chinese and song-medium-r-normal font is referenced in there. But I have no idea what to do to tell Java to look at RedHat's ttfs...I know where they are, just not specifically how to tell Java where to look.

With Respect,
