Description Sayamindu Dasgupta 2004-04-15 07:26:29 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4.1)

Description of problem:
Apparently, the FreeType autohinter cannot handle Indic fonts
correctly.  Freetype with bytecode interpreter enabled works fine. I
don't suppose Fedora will be enabling that - so the best solution will
be disable autohinting for the MuktiNarrow font. The following lines
are needed in /etc/fonts/fonts.conf

         <match target="font">
                <test name="family">
                        <string>Mukti Narrow</string>
                <edit name="hinting">

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open gedit

2. Copy paste the text &#2438;&#2478;&#2494;&#2480;
&#2488;&#2494;&#2527;&#2478;&#2495;&#2472;&#2509;&#2470;&#2497; into gedit

3. See the rendering

Actual Results:  The glyphs are not being aligned properly

Expected Results:  The glyphs should line up correctly.
