need to add dependency of fonts for langauges
Last modified: 2013-07-02 20:37:02 EDT
Description of problem:
When we install a m17n-db-LANG package, then it should check whether repective
languague's fonts were installed or not?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
everytime with a language (suppose Punjabi) installation
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Fresh install Desktop with any single Indic (suppose Punjabi) Language
2. yum install m17n-db-hindi (other than default (Punjabi) language)
3. Package is installed, but without hindi langauge's fonts
m17n-db-LANG (m17n-db-hindi) package installed
m17-db-LANG (m17n-db-hindi) package should show dependency for fonts
(fonts-hindi), so that User can able to use other langauge (hindi)
If you want to add Hindi support after installation, the way to do it
is "yum group install hindi-support" or use the package tool,
otherwise better to grab the fonts yourself I'm afraid.
While I sympathize with the idea, the m17n-db input maps are not really tied
to any particular fonts - it is conceivable users might prefer to install
some other font in place of the ones we ship for instance.
