I used David Leung's page on multilingual processing while tring to use 

David's page is meant specifically for users of MikTeX.
I use Linux so I'm not  using MikTeX.

My problem is stated at:

I could not find the "localtexmf" folder referred to on that page.
I think I couldnt find it because David's page was meant for those using 

So I put the mentioned files and  subdirs, in /usr/share/texmf, in the (what 
I thought) appropriate place.

ALso, I could not Run the command "initexmf -u" as he had asked because 
there was no such
command in my system.
Again, I think this is because it was meant for those using MikTeX.

I'm not getting any output, and my complete program and TeX's response is 
stated at the
URL  above.

I am sure that my source file (also at the above URL at google groups) is 
because I mailed it to David and he is getting the appropriate output.

I am quite sure that  the problem is that my installation(font) files are 
in their correct place becuase I get the following message from TeX


! Font U/xnsh/m/n/10=xnsh14 at 14.40002pt not loadable: Metric (TFM)
file not f
<to be read again>


So I need help on where to move appropriate files, and also
what to do about the error mesg regarding TFM files.

Thanks a lot.
