Do you want to use Latin-2 characters on xfig? OK. You can probably use internationalization facility to enable it, as described below.
You should then put following lines to app-defaults file:
Fig.international: true Fig.inputStyle: Root Fig.eucEncoding: false !Fig.latinKeyboard: true
You may or may not want to remove ``!'' at the lastest line.
And then, set LANG environment variable to the desired locale (czech, for example) and start xfig, then select Times-Roman or Times-Bold on TEXT FONT and enter text from keyboard. If everything was OK, you may enter locale specific characters here, using localized keyboard and/or ``dead keys''.
PostScript header file for Czech (czech.ps) is contributed from Ales Horak, and I believe it should work for any Latin-2 languages such as Hungarian, Polish, Romanian, etc. If you want use Latin-2 languages, you should get czech.ps, and put it as locale.ps (locale is locale name you use) in the directory specified with FIG2DEV_LIBDIR when installing fig2dev (you should find some files such as ja_JP.eucJP.ps in the directory).
If everything was OK, you may export figure with Latin-2 characters and print it to PostScript printer, or process the PostScript file with GhostScript. Special fonts are not required to process the PostScript file, because czech.ps generate Latin-2 fonts from general Times-Roman and Times-Bold fonts.
PostScript header file for other Latin-n languages (n = 3, 4, ...) is not prepared at this time. Contribution is strongly expected.
