Description of problem:
In RHL 9, Japanese fonts were nice and antialiased. Since upgrading to Fedora
Core test2 from RHL 9, Japanese fonts aren't antialiased.
Actually, from testing, it's a little more complicated than that. The Arial MS
Unicode contains Japanese characters, and when it is used to display Japanese,
the characters are antialiased. For all Japanese fonts, the characters become
antialiased (or look so) on certain point sizes, especially large ones. When
using the MS Gothic font, the Roman alphabet characters are always antialiased,
but the Japanese characters are only antialiased at point sizes above 18. With
MS Mincho, no characters are antialiased at any point size below 18, but all
characters are antialiased at all sizes 18 and above. When using Kochi Gothic
and Kochi Mincho, the fonts are completely antialiased (testing with gedit) at
size 14, and at all sizes 18 and above, and not at all otherwise.
With RHL 9, all these fonts were antialiased at all different sizes. They
looked a lot better.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Japanese fonts.
2. View something in Japanese.
3. Observe fonts.
Actual Results: Fonts are not antialiased, except at certain, especially large,
Expected Results: Fonts should have been antialiased at all sizes, like in RHL 9.
After checking more carefully, this is a duplicate of #97337. The temporary fix
seems to work for now. Closing as a duplicate.
