    I am looking to use Chinese symbols as my next icons for a theme I'm creating for a friend.

    I have DL'ed two chinese fonts but they do not appear on Gimp.

    Does anyone have any idea where I could get symbols that work that I can use as icons.

    Thanks so much for the help!

    Font files won't work. They need to be an image file, preferably .png format. I'm sure if you google search "Chinese symbols" you could find the ones you're looking for.

    Oh, and I have no idea what "Gimp" is...

    It's a ZEN but a personal theme for a friend so no wide release.

    I ended up using a different background too as he didn't care for the fans.

    Gimp is a photo-manupulation software. Basically a free version of Photoshop. Glad you got it worked out for that.
