Description Akira TAGOH 2008-10-22 02:55:21 UTC
Created attachment 321105 [details] Screenshot Description of problem: When I select Japanese on the language selection with today's rawhide tree, it looks like anaconda is rendering some glyphs with Chinese font. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): anaconda-188.8.131.52 How reproducible: always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Select Japanese on the language selection 2.See a notice for beta after pressing Next button twice. 3. Actual results: some glyphs looks like from Chinese font. Expected results: should be from Japanese font. Additional info: This is a regression. it worked before.
Comment 1 Chris Lumens 2008-10-22 13:53:38 UTC
What fonts should we be using for Japanese now?
Comment 2 Akira TAGOH 2008-10-23 01:44:33 UTC
VL-Gothic-Regular.ttf in VLGothic-fonts package.
Comment 3 Chris Lumens 2008-10-23 13:54:47 UTC
Hm, that's definitely the font we are including.
Comment 4 Chris Lumens 2008-10-27 14:42:35 UTC
This happens when running anaconda on a regular system in test mode too.
Comment 5 Nicolas Mailhot 2008-10-29 17:34:34 UTC
We've merged a lot of Asian (Korean...) fonts lately, maybe it's one of them You really need to have Behdad audit the fontconfig priority level given to all recent CJK fonts (and I include fonts in the pipeline like hanazono). For example, I've seen CJK packages that proposed 59 as priority, when our guidelines (which match upstream's) state the highest priority for a non LGC font should be 65. I hope we'll not repeat the arms race between Chinese/Japanese/Korean users where each one tries to one-up the other and put himself higher in the priority queue.
Comment 6 Jens Petersen 2008-11-11 05:35:41 UTC
This only seems to affect anaconda, so I don't see why this should be a fontconfig issue.
Comment 7 Chris Lumens 2008-11-11 23:10:38 UTC
Jens - so, any idea what could be going on here? I'm not exactly a font expert so I'm at a bit of a loss as to what could be the cause of this problem.
Comment 8 Jens Petersen 2008-11-11 23:26:06 UTC
I guess pango is not seeing the locale information somehow so it doesn't know what CJK font to choose. As I recall this regression started happening (very roughly) a week or more before this bug was filed.
Comment 9 Jens Petersen 2008-11-13 02:43:00 UTC
Fixed for me in anaconda-184.108.40.206-1.
Comment 10 Jens Petersen 2008-11-27 01:37:00 UTC
Not sure if I tested well enough, or what happened, but this is back in f10-final unfortunately. :-(
Comment 11 Jens Petersen 2008-11-27 02:46:55 UTC
Yeah my bad I retested anaconda-220.127.116.11-1 and it was broken too. Actually testing more I realise this is not a new bug: it affects Chinese fonts in F8 and F9 anaconda too. Now in F10 Chinese is ok but Japanese broken instead - presumably the fontconfig default priorities changed that. But this needs to be fixed by some kind of lang tagging or locale setting in anaconda.
Comment 12 Jens Petersen 2008-11-27 02:55:12 UTC
> it affects Chinese fonts in F8 and F9 anaconda too. I meant Chinese installs (they get Japanese glyphs appearing when they exist).
Comment 13 Takanori MATSUURA 2008-12-11 01:08:06 UTC
Sometimes, font switching in pango is irresponsible、especially in alias fonts (serif, sans-serif, monospace). Firefox used to have the similar problem and has been fixed. http://bugzilla.mozilla.gr.jp/show_bug.cgi?id=5180 (Mozilla-gumi bugzilla; in Japanese) https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=339513 (bmo)
Comment 14 Chris Lumens 2009-05-19 15:14:48 UTC
I changed out a lot of font package names for F11. Is this any better now?
