  Lithuanian, lithuanian - Introduction	to Lithuanian language support


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


  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.

    +  UCS-2, UCS-4, and UTF-8

       UCS-2, UCS-4, and UTF-8 are the strings that represent these encoding
       formats in the names of codeset converters. See Unicode(5) for more

    +  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 infor-

  See the i18n_intro(5)	and l10n_intro(5) reference pages for introductory
  information on codesets. The iconv_intro(5) reference	page discusses
  codeset converters and how to	use them.


  The operating	system provides	the following locale 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.

  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
  locale from the operating system command line.

  For the Common Desktop Environment (CDE), you	set locale by setting the
  session language. To do this,	use the	Language menu accessed from the
  Options button of the	Login window.


  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)
  LK401			    LK471
  LK411			    LK97W

  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 the key-
  board(5) reference page 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 keymaps.

  Selecting keymaps in xkb format:

  For VT Style		   For PC Style
  Keyboard:	 Select:   Keyboard:	  Select:
  LK401		 lk401	   LK471	  lk471
  LK411		 lk411	   LK97W	  lk97w
			   PCXAL	  pcxal

  Selecting keymaps in xmodmap format:

  For VT Style			    For	PC Style
  Keyboard:	 Select:	    Keyboard:	   Select:
  LK401		 lithuanian lk401   PCXAL	   lithuanian pcxal
  LK411		 lithuanian lk411

  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. Refer to the	keyboard(5) reference page for information on how to
  enter	characters.


  The operating	system does not	provide	PostScript fonts for the ISO Latin-4

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