Comment 7 Akira TAGOH 2005-11-08 08:19:12 EST
perhaps this should be reassigned to xpdf since we had a new chinese fonts and
/usr/share/xpdf/chinese-{simplified,traditional}/add-to-xpdfrc has to be
modified anyway.
Than, can you update them for new Chinese fonts? although I can make a patch for
them, simply you can replace bsmi00lp.ttf and gbsn00lp.ttf to uming.ttf so that
new Chinese fonts are integrated for both of Simplified/Traditional Chinese fonts.

Comment 13 Ngo Than 2005-11-09 06:16:03 EST
Akira, are bsmi00lp.ttf and gbsn00lp.ttf now removed in the new fonts-chinese
package? and the replacement for that is uming.ttf ?
Comment 14 Ngo Than 2005-11-09 06:22:43 EST
there's a new xpdf package in rawhide which fixes this problem. Thanks
