Handling Process
Step 1 Go to the CLI mode of the operating system of the maintenance terminal.
Step 2 Go to the /usr/lib/jvm/jre/lib/fonts directory of the JRE installation path.
Step 3 Run the mkdir fallback command to create a folder named fallback.
Step 4 Copy the Simsun.ttf font file from C:\WINDOWS\Fonts of the Windows to Linux.
Step 5 Move or copy Simsun.ttf to the fallback folder.
[root@test ~]#
[root@test ~]# mkdir /usr/lib/jvm/jre/lib/fonts/fallback
[root@test ~]# cp Simsun.ttf /usr/lib/jvm/jre/lib/fonts/fallback
