NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       Slovene,  slovene  - Introduction to Slovene language support

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       This reference page  describes  the  coded  character  set
       (codeset),  locale,  device, font, and other kinds of support
 for the Slovene  language  as  used  in  the  Slovene

   Codesets    [Toc]    [Back]
       The  operating  system supports the following codesets for
       Slovene by means of locales, codeset converters, or  both:
       ISO 8859-2 (ISO Latin 2)

              ISO8859-2  is the string that represents this codeset
 in names of locales and codeset converters. See
              iso8859-2(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
              locales and codeset converters. See Unicode(5)  for
              more information.  PC code pages

              cp852  and  cp1252  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 Slovene language and Slovenia: sl_SI.ISO8859-2

              The sl_SI.ISO8859-2@ucs4 variant of this locale  is
              also available to applications that need to convert
              file data in ISO8859-2 format to UCS-4 process code
              to   perform   certain  operations  on  characters.

              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 Slovene characters printed on  the

       VT-Style (105/108 keys)   PC -Style (102 keys)
       LK411-BY                  LK471-BY
       LK461-BY                  LK47W-BY
       LK46W-BY                  LK97W-BY

       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
       Slovene-specific  information  that  you need when loading

       Selecting keymaps in xkb format:

       For VT-Style             For PC-Style
       Keyboard:      Select:   Keyboard:      Select:
       LK411-BY       lk411     LK471-BY       lk471by or lk471
       LK461-BY       lk461     LK47W-BY       lk471by or lk471
       LK46W-BY       lk461     LK97W-BY       lk97wby or lk97w
                                PCXAL-HY       pcxalhy
                                PCXAL-PY       pcxalpy
                                PCXAL-SY       pcxalsy

       Selecting keymaps in xmodmap format:

       For VT-Style                 For PC-Style
       Keyboard:      Select:       Keyboard:      Select:
       LK411-BY       scs lk411by   LK471-BY       scs pcxalhy

       LK46W-BY       scs lk411by   PCXAL-HY       scs pcxalhy
                                    PCXAL-PY       scs pcxalpy
                                    PCXAL-SY       scs pcxalhy

       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 PostScript fonts available for languages supported  by
       the ISO 8859-2 codeset are listed in iso8859-2(5).
