    The example you are trying to use apparently needs the Bitstream
    Cyberbit font cyberbit.ttf because it contains something like:


    (See also the last section of

    The Bitstream Cyberbit font is a commercial, non-free font. It used
    to be downloadable for personal use from Bitstream, but Bitstream has
    discontinued it. See also:

    If you still have the font, this example file will work if you just
    copy the font to /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/truetype/cyberbit.ttf and

        SuSEconfig --module cjk-latex

    But if you don't absolutely need a font covering most of Unicode 2.0
    to use CJK-LaTeX in UTF-8. You can just as well use different fonts
    for Japanese, Chinese, and Korean. Actually using different fonts for
    these languages will give much better results.

    Have a look at the example file


    This file demonstrates the use of Japanese, Chinese, and Korean in one
    .tex file in UTF-8 using different fonts for each language. All fonts
    used in that example file are free and available as .rpm packages on
    SuSE Linux 8.1.
