Description LiuYan 2018-09-29 09:14:00 UTC
Description of problem:
After I upgraded to Fedora 28 from Fedora 27, I found the font displayed in my MATE desktop is not what I configured before, so I try to reconfigured, but I can't found the font name "文泉驿点阵正黑" anymore, (this made Chinese characters in images generated by gnuplot ("文泉驿点阵正黑" font named specifed) unreadable), but I do found it's alternative font name "WenQuanYi Zei Hei Sharp".

Also, I tried the recent released Fedora 29 Beta live CD, same issue still exists.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
1.12.91-1.fc28 +

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot from Fedora 28 or Fedora 29 Beta Live CD, and config the network to make sure it can access internet.
2. Install wqy-zenhei-fonts (issue `su` then `dnf install wqy-zenhei-fonts` in terminal)
3. Issue `LANG=zh_CN.UTF-8 fc-list | grep -i wqy-zenhei.ttc`

Actual results:
# fc-list | grep -i wqy-zenhei.ttc
/usr/share/fonts/wqy-zenhei/wqy-zenhei.ttc: WenQuanYi Zen Hei:style=Regular
/usr/share/fonts/wqy-zenhei/wqy-zenhei.ttc: WenQuanYi Zen Hei Sharp,文泉驛點陣正黑:style=Regular
/usr/share/fonts/wqy-zenhei/wqy-zenhei.ttc: WenQuanYi Zen Hei Mono:style=Regular

Expected results:
(this is from Fedora 27, with fontconfig 2.12.6-4.fc27)
# fc-list | grep -i wqy-zenhei.ttc
/usr/share/fonts/wqy-zenhei/wqy-zenhei.ttc: 文泉驿点阵正黑,文泉驛點陣正黑,WenQuanYi Zen Hei Sharp:style=Regular
/usr/share/fonts/wqy-zenhei/wqy-zenhei.ttc: 文泉驿等宽正黑,文泉驛等寬正黑,WenQuanYi Zen Hei Mono:style=Regular
/usr/share/fonts/wqy-zenhei/wqy-zenhei.ttc: 文泉驿正黑,文泉驛正黑,WenQuanYi Zen Hei:style=Regular


Additional info:
* Fedora 27 does not have this issue. Lastest fontconfig version in Fedora 27 is 2.12.6-4.fc27
* Fedora 29 Live CD still have this issue
* Interesting thing, adobe-source-han-sans-cn font is not affected:

  # fc-list | grep -i 思源黑体
  ...
  /usr/share/fonts/adobe-source-han-sans-cn/SourceHanSansCN-Normal.otf: 思源黑体 CN,Source Han Sans CN Normal,Source Han Sans CN:style=Normal,Regular
  ...

Comment 1 LiuYan 2018-10-09 03:10:19 UTC
fontconfig-2.13.1-1.fc29 seems had fixed this issue.

$ fc-list --version; fc-list | grep -i wqy-zenhei.ttc
fontconfig version 2.13.1
/usr/share/fonts/wqy-zenhei/wqy-zenhei.ttc: 文泉驿点阵正黑,文泉驛點陣正黑,WenQuanYi Zen Hei Sharp:style=Regular
/usr/share/fonts/wqy-zenhei/wqy-zenhei.ttc: 文泉驿等宽正黑,文泉驛等寬正黑,WenQuanYi Zen Hei Mono:style=Regular
/usr/share/fonts/wqy-zenhei/wqy-zenhei.ttc: 文泉驿正黑,文泉驛正黑,WenQuanYi Zen Hei:style=Regular

Can we have fontconfig-2.13.1 built for Fedora 28 too?
