cyrillic fonts install & KDE
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:27:18 EDT
I've just installed RH6.2 , choosing Russian as the def. language.
Unlike in RH6.1 6.0 5.2 , now cyrillic fonts are installed in this case -
very well, and in GNOME the things, that should be in Russian are in
Russian, but in KDE there is another picture - unreadable symbols instead
of russian symbols, - because KDE doesn't see russian fonts (KDE's bug).
But this problem can be easily overcomed - in /etc/X11/fs/config file , in
the catalogue section, move the string /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/cyrillic,
to the first place.
After installation this section was :
catalogue = /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/misc:unscaled,
It needs to be :
catalogue = /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/cyrillic,
In this case KDE sees cyrillic fonts, and menus are OK.
As far as I understand , XFree86-cyrillic-fonts-3.3.6-20.i386.rpm, must be
installed after all other fonts are installed. (maybe except misc)
thanks for your report! I will forward this to the KDE folks ...
Please check if this still occurs with the current version (2.0).
The bug disappeared in KDE2.0 ( Currently using xfree 4.0.1 binaries from
xfree.org + manually compiled KDE2)
