Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 138193
Multiple dependant vowel signs (indic) displayed as one
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:53 EST
Description of problem:
When the same dependant vowel is entered multiple times following a
consonant, there is no visual indication available for the same. As a
result, its very easy to make spelling mistakes.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. LANG=hi_IN.UTF-8 gedit
2. ctrl+space, F6 (switch on iiimf, use phonetic keyboard layout)
3. Enter following key combinations: kooooo, kOOOOO, kiiii, kIIII
kuuu, kUUU, keeee, kEEEE
Even if the vowel sign is repeated over and over again, the display
shows just one vowel sign.
Only one dependant vowel should be attached to the preceding
consonant. Repeated vowel signs should be displayed independently of
the consonant as a blank dotted circle with the vowel sign.
the 'k' key corresponds to a vowel, the english vowel keys correspond
to hindi dependant vowels in the phonetic keyboard layout.
The same problem also exists in Gujarati (gu_IN.UTF-8).
Tested on RHEL4B2-20041027.0 using the lohit fonts.
this is also existing for Punjabi(pa_IN). This is very serious problem, when u r
on GTK engine, user is totaly unaware about number of characters to be print,
only able to find this if he check that document with some other rendering engine!
I wrote a patch to fix this bug, and multiple dependant vowel signs (indic) can
display as more, not as one.
The patch was committed in http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=330407.
Reassigning pango bugs to Behdad.
I wrote a new patch for this bug.
The address is below:
My patch has already been received by upstream. It can be closed.
This will be fixed as soon as we push a pango update for fc6
pango-1.14.6-2.fc6 has been pushed for fc6, which should resolve this issue. If these problems are still present in this version, then please make note of it in this bug report.
