In Persian Locale, Sans and Monospace fonts (For English characters)
doesn't appear correctly (They appear very large and ugly). But
fonts like Luxi Sans and Luxi Mono appear nice. It should be solved
because most of Persian fonts doesn't have any English characters
and system use Sans and Monospace for them.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:

Persian font without English letters should be used).

An screenshot from my gnome in persian using Sans font
These are steps:
1. Make sure that you havn't any Persian font which has English
letters(Like Windows Times font) and choose Sans font (or a Persian
font) for applications.
2. In the login screen, go to Language menu and select Persian. Then
login to gnome and run a program to see what happens.
2. While system language is not Persian, run this command in a gnome
I get what you mean now. The font that is being displayed is a bitmap
font that happens to have the Persian glyphs in them. To avoid that, I
personally remove those fonts from my computer, but I guess pango 1.3
is fixing the bug. Owen?
mv 10x20.pcf 9x15B.pcf 9x15.pcf console8x16.pcf ~/backup
Yes, I think this should work better with Pango-1.4 or newer.
(Though Pango-1.4.0 in fc2 is a bit buggy in this regard.)
Confirmation would be good.
