No Russian keyboard in Jaguar at all
Authored by: Gene on Aug 25, '02 01:35:33PM

A couple of things:

1. I can't recall the correct name of the option but during 10.2 install it should have asked you if you wanted to install additional fonts and so. This is what I did to get the fonts loaded.

2. Keyboard scripts need to be stored in /Library/Keyboard Layouts or ~/Library/Keyboard Layouts. What is the the /System/Library/Keyboard Layouts is probably OS 10.2 stuff for Russian/Bulgarian/Ukrainian that comes with the OS.

3. As far as reading Russian goes you will always be able to read it because fonts can display all the necessary characters.

Hope this helps.

No Russian keyboard in Jaguar at all

Hi Gene, Just to let you and others know that I've solved the problem. I noticed that my applications didn't see the fonts in ~/Library/Fonts (in my home directory) after the installation of Jaguar. Everything was fine in 10.1.5. I moved a few Cyrillic fonts from there to /Library/Fonts (central location) and restarted the computer. After that the system found all fonts, i.e. those I had moved to /Library/Fonts and those I'd left in my home fonts folder. I suspect that the Mac OS X font system checks the font directories' modification time to update its font cache. Since I didn't change my local fonts after having installed Jaguar, they went unnoticed by the system. I have also installed a couple of alternative Russian keyboard layouts to ~/Library/Keyboard Layouts, and now can see/choose them in System Preferences. Thanks a lot, Gene, for pointing me to a direction which helped to solve my problem. Regards, KC
