Description Atsushi Kanemoto 2005-01-23 11:50:36 UTC
UNICON is a CJK (Chinese/Japanese/Korean) Linux console input and display
system. It can support console virtual terminals, GPM mouse, keyboard, and
almost all video devices using the kernel frame buffer. It supports multiple
language fonts with a font manager so each virtual console can display a
different font and input method. UNICON also can display IBM table characters
mixed with double byte language encodings.

If you want this in the kernel, present this patch to
linux-kernel@vger.kernel.org and linux-fbdev-devel@lists.sourceforge.net.  You
have to make a good case.
