Description Satyabrata Maitra 2011-07-07 02:02:09 EDT
Description of problem:
In Fedora 15 Release version, the default font for oowriter, oocalc, is appearing as "AnjaliOldLipi" which is wrong. It should appear with "Meera" Font instead, for Malayalam Locale (ml_IN).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
libreoffice-core-3.3.2.2-7.fc15

How reproducible:
Always.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Fedora-15 with Malayalam language
2. Open oowriter or oocalc
3. Observe the Default Font appearing.
  
Actual results:
The default font is showing "AnjaliOldLipi".

Expected results:
It should appear with "Meera" font by default.

AnjaliOldLipi was the selection based on:
https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=32953

"Meera - almost good as AnjaliOldLipi, but totally missing  0D7A, 0D7B, 
        0D7C, 0D7D, 0D7E"
Comment 2 Caolan McNamara 2011-07-07 04:02:50 EDT
So, is there a better justification to sort Meera before AnjaliOldLipi for Malayalam as the default document font for Malayalam ? Or is the above convincing for AnjaliOldLipi.
Comment 3 Satyabrata Maitra 2011-07-07 05:04:50 EDT
Pravin and Ani

Can you please justify it and reply? As per the fc-match The default font for malayalam Desktop is meera.

libreoffice-core-3.3.2.2-7.fc15 has already changed the default Malayalam font to AnjaliOldLipi from Meera. Am forwarding the bug to community for further discussions.

Thanks
Ani
Comment 5 Caolan McNamara 2011-10-03 07:20:31 EDT
I can't personally judge which is the better default. Upstream I accepted the argument that AnjaliOldLipi was better than Meera because it had 0D7A, 0D7B, 0D7C, 0D7D, 0D7E.

Feel free to reopen this if you think that was a bad decision or if there's a alternative consensus about the best font for ml and I'll fix it upstream as well.
