Does the font setting work for any other font with Japanese?
in reply to Perl Tk -font option is not working in linux if the language is japanese
Are you sure the font in questions can display Japanese?
Can you show a short sample code that demostrates the problem?
This works for me:
perl -MEncode -MTk -e 'my $j = decode("utf-8", "\xe6\x97\xa5\xe6\x9c\x
my $w = new MainWindow::;
$w->Label(-text => $j,
-font => "-adobe-helvetica-regular-r-normal-*-12-*-*-*-*
