Description of problem:
Xpdf of FC4 sometimes refuses to display japanese texts.
Especially, as to /usr/bin/pdffonts, embedded fonts are displayed correctly while non-embedded ones go wrong.
Since FC4 Test, it seems to have changed the directory names in /usr/share/fonts.
For example /usr/share/fonts/ja to /usr/share/fonts/japanese,
.../zh_CN to .../chinese, and so on.
Actually the files included from /etc/xpdfrc are to be updated.
Now I'm taking a workaround making my own $HOME/.xpdfrc with correct paths, but everyone should be happy if this is default.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install fonts-japanese package
2. make a PDF including some non-embedded cjk fonts or download a URL above
3. open it
Actual Results: Non-embedded fonts aren't displayed.
(There must be japananese words between ``Sound MX'' and the horizontal line in the title page of the downloaded file.)
Expected Results: Displayed using a system's default font.
Evince viewer cannot, too.
it's now fixed in xpdf-3.00-19. Many thanks for your reports.
