Description Yoshihiro Kosakai 2005-05-23 01:54:07 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; ja-JP; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050512 Fedora/1.0.4-2 Firefox/1.0.4

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):

How reproducible:

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.

Additional info:

Evince viewer cannot, too.
