Wow, cool. That solves the problem.

Yes, in the installation I selected all the locale support including fonts
for Chinese, but I am still using en_US as my locale, as I would like to
continue use English as my default language. Is there a better way which
allows me to continue use English as my default locale (as in menus, etc),
but set zh_CN as the second?
Thanks a lot Juan.
