Description Parag Nemade 2017-09-25 08:12:29 UTC
Description of problem:
I was just thinking what package now changed the font rendering and found its this urw-base35-fonts package actually.
I compared RC2 image results with my working F27 updates-testing packages applied system and found this
serif: URWBookman-Light.t1: "URW Bookman" "Light"
sans-serif: URWGothic-Book.t1: "URW Gothic" "Book"
monospace: NimbusMonoPS-Regular.t1: "Nimbus Mono PS" "Regular"

whereas this should have been using the default font names
serif: DejaVuSerif.ttf: "DejaVu Serif" "Book"
sans-serif: DejaVuSans.ttf: "DejaVu Sans" "Book"
monospace: DejaVuSansMono.ttf: "DejaVu Sans Mono" "Book"

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. just fc-match for serif, sans-serif, monospace

Actual results:
Changed the default fonts

Expected results:
should keep default fonts

Comment 2 Parag Nemade 2017-09-25 08:27:47 UTC
continuing from last comment, not sure if its a bug in dnf that is not allowing me to downgrade. Removing will remove many packages which I don't want to remove.

Comment 3 Parag Nemade 2017-09-25 08:43:26 UTC
By simply moving the numeric order from 35 to 58 solved the issue on my machine now.

Hello, thanks for the bug report!

I have fix ready, but I'm currently testing it myself. Please, hold on there for a little longer. Thank you!
