In GB18030 Xmanager2.0 cannot work well with AIX5.2

who can help me!!

our environment is AIX5.2 with GB18030 characterset。the font server is configured In host beacause if not the login window cannot show.

When i connect the host with Xmanager2.0(enterprise)or 1.3.9 ,the GB18030 chinese charactes in the login window cannot show clearly ,which show in fig1.

After entering CDE,the english characters of dtterm windown and NetBackup 's interface cannot show clearly ,but the chinese font can show well.All of the above disclear characters are show properly in host CDE,which show in fig2.

When entering NetBackup software ,an alert window pop up,which show can't open the following font:-b&h-lucida-medium -r-normal--*-140-75-75-p-*-iso8859-1.

The present situation is that chinese characters can display normally,but some english characters display fuzzy after logged in.
If i do not use font server,the CDE will not come and Xmanager hangs, Although i have downloaded chinese font patch and installed it.
The log is as follows:

Following font pack contains Chinese UTF fonts for the AIX machines. After installing this font pack, remove the font server from Xconfig and try accessing the AIX machine.


Your feedback will be greatly appreciated.
