Description Lawrence Lim 2004-12-06 09:15:37 UTC
Description of problem:
When starting firefox with LANG=zh_TW in the bn_IN locale, the
application title bar falls back to the bitmap font instead of the
ttfont. As a result some of the characters cannot be displayed.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
fontconfig-2.2.3-7
bitmap-fonts-0.3-4
ttfonts-zh_TW-2.11-28

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.log in as normal user at gdm into bn_IN locale
2.in gnome-terminal, LANG=zh_TW.UTF-8 firefox
3.
  
Actual results:
Unable to display zh_TW character in the application title bar.

Expected results:
Able to display zh_TW character in the application title bar.

Additional info:
Removing the bitmap-fonts-0.3-4 package will allow the application to
display the chars properly.

Comment 1 Leon Ho 2004-12-06 09:25:10 UTC
It is probably a general case - 
1. the title bar is following the desktop locale instead of
application. 2. it is not using the correct font to fallback correctly
because it is not in that specific locale. 

2nd one is probably related to bug #107952, right?

(Changing summary into more general)
