    piCorePlayer Jivelite with Japanese and Chinese Characters

    My piCorePlayer is a RPI 3B+ with 7" touchscreen piCoreplayer 5.0 installed.

    I have considerable number of song files tagged in Japanese and Chinese characters, which default font cannot display correctly.
    How do change or add Japanese and Chinese fonts.

    I have tried with Moode Player, I am able to use this command to installed Asian fonts.

    sudo apt-get install ttf-kochi-gothic xfonts-intl-japanese xfonts-intl-japanese-big xfonts-kaname fonts-unfonts-core xfonts-intl-chinese fonts-arphic-uming

    I think the piCorePlayer file system is different and not able to use "apt-get" to install those fonts.


    Anyone able to get them to work.

    Thanks

    Yes, there is a completely different package system.

    There is an Extension Button on the main page. You should just need to add this extension

    perl_font_freetype.tcz

    Thanks Paul,

    After installed the extension, is there any setting I need to set? I saw the perl_font_freetype.tcz was installed.
    But the Jivelite still doesn't display the characters.

    The more I thought about it that just give LMS support for those characters.

    You will need to do this for jivelite. https://forums.slimdevices.com/showt...ePlayer/page20

    Thanks for the link, I am newbie so the link has more information than I can handle.

    I hope you can include supports for those language in next future LMS update.
