I cannot see East Asian languages in libreoffice, or any other text document program on my waldorf OS, even though I have ibus installed and I am able to type East Asian language. I tried to set the settings for libreoffice to allow East Asian language, but to no avail. Similarly, for other programs like abiword, wordpad, etc.
no, I can't, it's all boxes.
OK, when I type east asian language into my wordpad, yes, I can see the characters, but then after I save the file and re-open it, it all become either boxes or some weird alien codes.

It's a large package, but a quicky workaround might be to install ttf-unifont...
That should make LibreOffice usable while you troubleshoot this.

This is my locale.
And in regard to CJK supported, do you have any package in mind?
Also I installed ttf-unifont and it's still all boxes in libreoffice, wordpad, etc.

I have fixed all Asian, Indian and many other Eastern languages by installing these fonts
Tested on Wikipedia that display completely all characters of any languages listened there. Also my desktop listen every character. Tested also on google translator.
So Ok, I did as what the previous poster said, and while indeed I am now able to see and type and use east asian language in libre office, the east asian language display on my browser has now changed into a font type that I do not like at all, and I tried to fix it using chrome's setting but there is no options available for east asian language and changing the western ones doesn't seem to effect east asian ones, so any suggestions on solving that.
But other than that, yes! this issue is now resolved. Thanks alot!!! Really appreciated. You guys are awesome! And if you can help me with that browser issue so that I change my font on my display as well that would be even super-er!
I use Iceweasel backported.
With those fonts installed on my system everything seems apparent on the basis of language and alphabetic characters also on browser.
Haven't tested on Chrome sorry, please can you make a screenshots regarding the issue that you still have? just to see something concrete.
Can you check with any other browser?
I am faithful to FF/Iceweasel , my locale is same as yours. This is my browser font settings
Perhaps must be used like
Fallback Text Encoding: Default for Current Locale
Whether Chrome has such options, (I believe there should be).

Hi, Nili, my issue is a bit come dire than just the problem with chrome. All the East Asian languages on my display have changed to a different font-type. Everything from Firefox, chrome, to folder names, have changed to a very small and somewhat illegal font type. Is there a way to solve this issue?
Is there perhaps a way to alter tint2 to change the fonts into a different type? Perhaps add a line for East Asian language or something like that?

It depends, for file manager/gtk theme i set Droid Sans 9 via LXappearance. This font is sticked to stay always as my default font, unless i change back on theme settings. So have a look on your theme settings for file manager font render
# DO NOT EDIT! This file will be overwritten by LXAppearance. # Any customization should be done in ~/.gtkrc-2.0.mine instead. include "/home/nili/.gtkrc-2.0.mine" gtk-theme-name="Mist" gtk-icon-theme-name="Flamini" gtk-font-name="Droid Sans 9" gtk-cursor-theme-name="pixelfun3" gtk-cursor-theme-size=0 gtk-toolbar-style=GTK_TOOLBAR_ICONS gtk-toolbar-icon-size=GTK_ICON_SIZE_SMALL_TOOLBAR gtk-button-images=1 gtk-menu-images=0 gtk-enable-event-sounds=1 gtk-enable-input-feedback-sounds=1 gtk-xft-antialias=1 gtk-xft-hinting=1 gtk-xft-hintstyle="hintslight" gtk-xft-rgba="rgb"
did you saved your font config?
$ dpkg-reconfigure fontconfig-config
on the three prompt required, i have chosed on my system as follows:
$ dpkg-reconfigure fontconfig
$ sudo fc-cache -f -v
maybe a reboot needed to ensure...
Also have a look fonts on #debian everything is better explained officially.
Regarding tint2, yes ofcourse you can use different type of font for every settings , ie: tray, clock, battery etc... i don't know for setting asian on tint2 panel sorry, never used asian font on this panel, have a look on tint2 thread or you may ask help for tint2 settings here
in my opinion, first fix your system fonts to do as you want then start to work/fix for tint2.
