Description Jens Petersen 2009-08-24 04:31:31 EDT
Description of problem:
If I run KDE apps in Japanese locale on GNOME,
their text is poorly displayed with the font
looking double-spaced.

How reproducible:
every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Login to GNOME
2. LANG=ja_JP.UTF-8 kate
Actual results:
Default application text appears double-spaced.

Expected results:
Same as for English etc (no langpack installed).

Additional info:
Also seems true for F11.  I haven't tested under KDE.

> (no langpack installed).

This seems irrelevant - even with kde-l10n-Japanese installed
still happens for ascii text.
Comment 2 Ngo Than 2009-08-24 04:56:21 EDT
I cannot reproduce this issue on F11. it seems your local fontconfig setting causes the problem. Could you please try with a fresh new user?

Rawhide screenshot of "LANG=ja_JP.UTF-8 kate".
Comment 4 Jens Petersen 2009-08-24 08:10:55 EDT
I can reproduce with a fresh user in rawhide in KDE too,
with ipa-*gothic-fonts installed.
Comment 5 Jens Petersen 2009-08-24 08:13:37 EDT
Actually only with IPAPGothic
Comment 6 Jaroslav Reznik 2009-08-24 08:53:57 EDT
I can reproduce it with IPA gothic fonts installed.
Comment 7 Jens Petersen 2009-09-14 20:03:22 EDT
Still see this with current rawhide.
Comment 8 Akira TAGOH 2009-09-15 01:46:13 EDT
I'm asking upstream this issue and waiting for a reply.
Comment 9 Jens Petersen 2009-09-29 01:34:55 EDT
Tomorrow's rawhide should revert to vlgothic which help with this.
Comment 10 Akira TAGOH 2009-09-29 05:05:31 EDT
This issue has been forwarded to "upstream" and there are no way of fixing that in house (apparently fontforge is a bit buggy), I'll leave this to upstream and visit again when they have a new release in the future.
