Software prerequisites for translated versions of InfoPrint Manager

You must install language support from the Linux operating system DVD-ROM, if it is not already installed, on to each Linux system that will run an InfoPrint server in a non-English supported language. InfoPrint Manager supports English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, and Japanese.

    Important:
  • For compatible communication between InfoPrint Manager servers running on different platforms (AIX, Linux and Windows) and all its clients available on AIX, Linux, Mac, and Windows, the recommendation is to use the Linux terminal in the default code page (UTF-8) when issuing commands (e.g. pdpr, pdls, a.s.o).
  • For customers running InfoPrint Manager for Linux in Japanese, the InfoPrint installer defines the Ja_JP locale (which is using the Shift JIS code page). This is needed for keeping the compatibility between InfoPrint Manager components running on AIX or Windows.

Use the locale -a command to see if the base Linux support is installed for your language. If it is not installed, you must install it before proceeding further.
