This is not an issue with fonts side. But rather font-viewer side.

But thinking about Noto family. I think it will be good to use alias rather than individual fonts name. It eating complete space. 

So all Noto family fonts will use single name. "Noto Sans"

I feel this might/should be better addressed first in Fedora.
Comment 5 Jens Petersen 2015-08-11 02:51:31 EDT
Moving to gtk3 based on first sentence of comment 3.
But again this is probably something that needs to be addressed
upstream in that case.
Comment 6 Matthias Clasen 2015-08-17 15:52:31 EDT
The font doesn't have coverage for the latin example text, would guess. Nothing GTK+ can magically fix. If we use fallback there, that would be misleading - you want to see how the font itself looks.
Comment 7 Matthias Clasen 2015-08-20 16:01:03 EDT
But I agree with Jens comment 4: this needs to be discussed and fixed upstream (gnome/fedora) first.
