Description Anousak Souphavanh 2004-09-15 21:04:03 UTC
Description of problem:

This is to enable Lao locale for installs:
The keyboard and timezone defaults for the locale are follow:

1) Keyboard layout as been been defined under xkb/lo and timezone
should be Bangkok.
2) The Lao OT font required for it is attached.

Comment 2 Owen Taylor 2004-09-15 21:40:49 UTC
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?

Comment 3 Suzanne Hillman 2005-09-23 19:01:04 UTC
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)

Comment 5 Anousak Souphavanh 2005-09-27 01:27:21 UTC
Thanks, Owen, for the update and I am sure we can enable Lao in Fedora or the
others now. 
We have created free Lao UNICODE font which we are planning to distribute freely
and to be included in Open Source community.
