Debian Package of Communicator 4.0 Installer

I was going through the Debian-JP site when I found a nice installer for Netscape Communicator v403. It sets the X11R6 locale/ja up so that the cut and paste feature works with Japanese. There is also a nice resource option that sets all the menus to Japanese.

I thought this was a pretty slick way to get the Japanese cut and paste support to work with Netscape under Linux.

It is available from
ftp.debian.or.jp in /pub/Linux/debian-jp/contrib-jp. The package in the contrib-jp directory is /binary-i386/netscape-jp_v403-3.deb.

In addition to loading the liblocale so that the cut and paste works, there are extensive menus in Japanese. Either the English or the Japanese menus can be set to default.
