Comment 2 Jong Bae KO 2008-06-11 03:10:50 EDT
'/' is the problem. too long.
Comment 3 Caius Chance 2008-06-13 01:09:19 EDT
'/' looks like a full-width glyph. Are they input barely or with SCIM? I installed Korean Support and booted into Korean Gnome desktop. The '/' in my gnome-terminal (default monospace font) doesn't show like the screenshot in comment #1.
Comment 4 Caius Chance 2008-06-13 12:42:15 EDT
I found the problem glyph '/' within dotum font in baekmuk-ttf-fonts-dotum package. It is not a compulsory font so by default baekmuk-ttf-fonts-dotum installation is needed to reproduce this bug. Unfortunately, further test on such font in gnome-terminal showed it has severe alignment problem which every glyph is frequently overlapping each other. Loaded with fontforge to check the width of the glyphs, but the width seems correct. Will perform more tests on other rendering platform such as OpenOffice, Pango, etc. It might be necessary to lower this font's priority in fontconfig monospace alias list for current workaround.
Comment 5 Nicolas Mailhot 2008-06-13 14:26:40 EDT
Our current font packaging wishlist has the following entries in it: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Fonts/UN https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Fonts/UN_Extra Those fonts are preferred over baekmuk for korean in the latest fontconfig versions. Packaging them may be a better investment than changing baekmuk (disclaimer: I don't write or read korean. I've no idea if the claims UN is better than baekmuk are justified, and if fontconfig is right to prefer it. I just track the fonts wishlist)
Comment 6 Caius Chance 2008-06-16 18:35:42 EDT
True, Nicolas. There are way width problem on many glyphs in dotum. We should not keep that as default monospace font at the moment.
Comment 8 Jens Petersen 2008-06-23 00:06:09 EDT
Yes, we are planning to include un-fonts in F10.
Comment 9 Jens Petersen 2008-07-01 21:32:44 EDT
Un Dotum does not seem to have this problem btw.
Comment 10 Caius Chance 2008-07-02 19:28:56 EDT
Patch of openoffice to change requires from fonts-korean to baekmuk-ttf-fonts rely on this bug. OO has to be patched again when default Korean font is changed. (bug#453868)
Comment 11 Jens Petersen 2008-07-08 02:01:22 EDT
Maybe you can ask about the / issue upstream
Comment 12 Caius Chance 2008-08-06 01:46:57 EDT
Emailed upstream about the problem of dotum: http://kldp.net/projects/baekmuk/
Comment 13 Caius Chance 2008-09-02 02:04:14 EDT
According to jensp, dotum is not default font for Korean locale now. Also, still waiting for un-core-fonts to be built. Closing this bug.
