Lao OT font
In order to add a font to the distribution, we need more information;
In addition, Pango doesn't actually support the Lao script, so
I don't think adding a font by itself would allow Anaconda to
display Lao. Isn't some change for Pango needed as well?
Since there are insufficient details provided in this request for us to
investigate the issue further, and we have not received the feedback we
requested, we will assume the reporter has lost interest in the feature or it
has been fixed in a later update for this product.
(Pango does support Lao now, btw)
Thanks, Owen, for the update and I am sure we can enable Lao in Fedora or the
We have created free Lao UNICODE font which we are planning to distribute freely
and to be included in Open Source community.
