NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       Lithuanian,  lithuanian  - Introduction to Lithuanian language

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       This reference page  describes  the  coded  character  set
       (codeset),  locale,  device, font, and other kinds of support
 for the Lithuanian language.

   Codesets    [Toc]    [Back]
       The operating system supports the following  codesets  for
       Lithuanian  by  means  of  locales, codeset converters, or
       both: ISO 8859-4 (ISO Latin-4)

              ISO8859-4 is the string that represents this  codeset
 in names of locales and codeset converters. See
              iso8859-4(5) for more information.  UTF-16,  UCS-4,
              and UTF-8

              UTF-16,  UCS-4, and UTF-8 are the strings that represent
 these encoding formats in the names of codeset
  converters.  See  Unicode(5) for more information.
  PC code pages

              cp775 and cp1257 are  the  strings  that  represent
              these encoding formats in the names of codeset converters.
  See code_page(5) for more information.

       See  i18n_intro(5)  and  l10n_intro(5)  for   introductory
       information  on codesets. See iconv_intro(5) for a discussion
 of codeset converters and how to use them.

   Locales    [Toc]    [Back]
       The operating system provides the  following  locales  for
       the Lithuanian language and Lithuania: lt_LT.ISO8859-4

              The  lt_LT.ISO8859-4@ucs4 variant of this locale is
              also available for applications that need  to  convert
 file data in ISO8859-4 format to UCS-4 process
              code in order to perform certain  character-classification
 operations.  lt_LT.UTF-8

              UTF-8  locales  support file code and internal process
 code according to ISO 10646 and Unicode  standards.
  File  code,  in  UTF-8 locales, may include
              characters encoded in more than 1 byte;  therefore,
              use  these locales in applications that can process
              multibyte data. The UTF-8 locale supports the  euro
              monetary symbol; see euro(5).

       You can use the locale command (see locale(1)) to find out
       which  locales  are  installed   on   your   system.   See
       i18n_intro(5) for information on setting a locale from the
       operating system command line.

       In the Common Desktop Environment (CDE), you need to set a
       locale  by  setting the session language. To do this, from
       the Options menu of the  Login  window,  choose  Language.
       Then,  from  the  Language  options menu, choose a session

   Keyboards    [Toc]    [Back]
       The operating system supports the following  VT-style  and
       PC-style  keyboards  with Lithuanian characters printed on
       the keys:

       VT-Style (105/108 keys)   PC-Style (102 keys)
       LK411                     LK471

       For your keyboard to function correctly with your  system,
       you  must  load  a keyboard mapping table (keymap) that is
       appropriate for your keyboard's model and language. If you
       load  a keymap that does not correspond to your keyboard's
       model and  language,  your  keyboard  behavior  is  unpredictable.
  The  label  located  on the bottom surface of a
       keyboard usually specifies its  model  (five-letter  code)
       and  language  (two-letter code). See keyboard(5) for general
 information on keymaps and instructions  for  loading
       them  in  different  formats.  The following tables supply
       Lithuanian-specific information that you need when loading

       Selecting keymaps in xkb format:

       For VT-Style             For PC-Style
       Keyboard:      Select:   Keyboard:      Select:
       LK411          lk411     LK471          lk471
                                LK97W          lk97w
                                PCXAL          pcxal

       Selecting keymaps in xmodmap format:

       For VT-Style                      For PC-Style
       Keyboard:      Select:            Keyboard:      Select:
       LK411          lithuanian lk411   PCXAL          lithuanian pcxal

       Keyboards  can  have  keys with characters printed on both
       the left and right half of the keycap. The way you set  or
       use  your  keyboard  to  send different sets of characters
       varies from one keyboard model  to  another.  Furthermore,
       your  keyboard  allows  you  to enter more characters than
       those printed on the keycaps. See keyboard(5) for information
 on how to enter characters.

   Printers    [Toc]    [Back]
       The operating system does not provide PostScript fonts for
       the ISO Latin-4 codeset.

       See i18n_printing(5) for information  about  your  printer
       support options.
