aus9 - hah, you're catching on.  Don't sweat it.

Remember that on the anonymous internet, anybody can claim to be anybody or anything they want.  I could be Linus Torvalds masquerading as a TinyCore hacker in between compiling kernels, and Rich could be Steve Ballmer giving us support from Antartica for all we know.

The only thing that matters is action.  And so far, the only action I have seen from NOOB is adamantly trying to turn TC into Mint or Ubuntu with lazer-like focus.

Usually a "community" involves a little bit of give and take, not JUST thank-you's, or requesting custom extensions to be built 12 or more times in a row.

So far I only see an attitude of taking, "Answer my questions!"  "Build my extensions!"

I value your contribution as a community member, but sadly at some point entire threads that may contain valuable information are just ignored completely.  I'm sure *I* am guilty of that, so maybe I recognize it sooner than most. :)

My biggest fear is that the devs and other contributors may just tire of it and walk away from TC.  Again, being the anonymous internet, one never knows if that's the intention here.

Q9: Is fcitx not working properly? Run in the right-click menu Fcitx, FcitxConfiguration, FcitxSkinInstaller programs don't have any response.

You could pm the maintainer of the fcitx-sunpinyin extension and ask for help?

Sorry to interject again - but to make it clear about the anonymous internet:

For all we know, NOOB could be some guy or gal down the street trying to stir-up anti-Asian sentiment by engaging in classic internet troll behaviour to get us frustrated.

We just don't know, other than actions.  Don't be paranoid, just be on guard in today's world.

@Juanito
Thank you, but I've supplemented your response for my friends and others to browse through.  8)
If there is any problem with the command I wrote, I hope you can correct me. Thank you! ;D
Code: [Select]
EXPORT monitor=acpi_video0 or intel_backlight
cat /sys/class/backlight/$monitor/max_brightness
$ echo 0~max_brightness | sudo tee /sys/class/backlight/$monitor/brightness
Your answer to Q8 is very useful.Everything is file and it seems to make sense.
What does the "-n mem" in the below command mean?!
Code: [Select]
echo -n mem > /sys/power/state

The choices are:

mem -> suspend to ram
disk -> suspend to disk

@PDP-8
Thank you. I will not refute anyone's opinion of me. After all, right or wrong, good or bad is always a subjective matter, and it doesn't matter at all. I firmly believe that at any time the mentality, mind is the most important.

Q10: TCL does not display Chinese properly.
The following is my configuration information:
Code: [Select]
tc@box:/$ localedef --list-archive
en_US.utf8
zh_CN.gbk
zh_CN.utf8

Code: [Select]
tc@box:/$ echo $LANG
zh_CN.UTF-8

Code: [Select]
tc@box:/$ locale
LANG=zh_CN.UTF-8
LC_CTYPE="zh_CN.UTF-8"
LC_NUMERIC="zh_CN.UTF-8"
LC_TIME="zh_CN.UTF-8"
LC_COLLATE="zh_CN.UTF-8"
LC_MONETARY="zh_CN.UTF-8"
LC_MESSAGES="zh_CN.UTF-8"
LC_PAPER="zh_CN.UTF-8"
LC_NAME="zh_CN.UTF-8"
LC_ADDRESS="zh_CN.UTF-8"
LC_TELEPHONE="zh_CN.UTF-8"
LC_MEASUREMENT="zh_CN.UTF-8"
LC_IDENTIFICATION="zh_CN.UTF-8"
LC_ALL=

Oddly enough, if I had a "/usr/lib/locale/location-archive" file on my computer, the firefox window title (used to display the currently active site title) would appear as messy code when the web title was In Chinese.
If I delete the locale-archive file, when the site title is in Chinese, the window title only appears as " Mozilla firefox".

I don't like to explain anything to anyone, but I still need some clarification.

The first thing I need to say is that I am not what problems immediately in the BBS to ask for help. First, I will according to their own efforts to try to solve these problems, the second, if still can't solve I'll browse some domestic open source web site and try to find the answer. If still can't solve I may go and ask my friend, finally there is no way, I will come to this BBS Posting to you for help.

So I am very grateful to several friends who have been helping me and those who have helped me... I don't know anything about technology, and I may be what some people call a "lazer", but I must be the one who loves technology the most.

As some people have said, I can't contribute anything to the community and Just say thank you. The only thing I can do is to promote TCL to my friends in China, and this post may help them solve the problems I have encountered when they are also facing these problems.That's all.

Q10: TCL does not display Chinese properly

Have you used the getlocale extension to set up a Chinese locale and rebooted?
Is the bootcode "lang" set to the same Chinese locale?
Do you have fonts capable of displaying Chinese characters loaded?

There are three things you said that I have repeated at least five times before.Here's how I did it.
Have you used the getlocale extension to set up a Chinese locale and rebooted?
Code: [Select]
tce-load -wil getlocale.tcz
tce-load -wil glibc_add_libs.tcz
sudo getlocale.sh
# select "zh_CN_UTF-8" -> OK
mkdir -p /usr/lib/locale
localedef -i zh_CN -f GBK zh_CN
localedef -i zh_CN -f UTF-8 zh_CN
# added usr/lib/locale/locale-archive to /opt/.filetool.lst

Is the bootcode "lang" set to the same Chinese locale?
Code: [Select]
#/boot/syslinux/syslinux.config
lang=zh_CN.UTF-8

Do you have fonts capable of displaying Chinese characters loaded?
Code: [Select]
cd /usr/share/fonts/
wget xxx/wqy-mirohei.ttf
# added usr/share/fonts/wqy-microhei.ttc to /opt/.filetool.lst

You wouldn't have to repeat things five times if you started a different thread for each separate problem.

Did you run the fontconfig fc-cache command on the fonts after restoring them?

I would guess that, once loaded, fireflysung needs the following commands to work with firefox:
Code: [Select]
$ sudo fc-cache /usr/share/fonts

My firefox actually displays Chinese all the time...
But aterm, flwm(window manager),... cannot.
Please look at the title of the window.
