Hello all

We write a JAVA application on eclipse for Linux RedHat.
We need to show labels that are not in English.
We use lyr files or MXD to get layers with labels on the screen.
The labels looks ok on windows but look as gibberish on Linux.

Thanks
Mody

Hi Mody,
What language are you trying to setup. Can you confirm the software version and patch number? I hope you have applied the language patch?

I've often wondered how this would work myself.

ESRI supports GIS at the server level for Linux, but not desktop.  So if you based your lables on a font that is not part of linux, how do you get that windows font in linux?  How do you know it is supported?

We are trying to see labels in Hebrew.
All fonts are installed on Linux. We can see Hebrew on the form but not on the graphic screen.
Tried both shape file, FGDB and just graphics in the MXD. Some of them are not displayed at all, some other looks like gibberish.

Thanks
Mody

Were your labels based on a style?  Is the style file included in  ArcGIS Server?

Thanks to everybody that are trying to help!!
We are using Engine 10.1 no service pack.
What is the language patch? Is it for Engine or Linux?
We are not using any style just selecting fonts that was installed on the Linux too.
We can see Hebrew on the screen when using the MapTip Engine sample.Tthe Hebrew value on the screen looks fine but not as a label.
I notice that if we change the font in the lyr (in Windows) and try to load it on the Linux the font does not change.
If we change the size the label does look bigger.

Thanks
Mody
