Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 196328
Greek fonts missing from anaconda -- make Dejavu fonts default for Anaconda
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:35 EST
Description of problem:
Greek fonts are missing from Anaconda and the installation procedure in greek is
almost impossible using the current fonts.
See attached screenshot.
There has been an active discussion for evaluating DejaVu fonts as a replacement
for Bitstream ones. See bug #170218. This should be done in Anaconda too.
Screenshots of greek desktop using DejaVu fonts can be found at the greek L10N
team page, at: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/L10N/Teams/Greek

Note: There are two relevant older bug about chinese fonts, #155429 and #172163.
If it happens for the distro as a whole, then anaconda will switch as a result.
Otherwise, we can't just switch anaconda -- we use the same set of packages
with the same configuration for things
I think that this report has correctly been added as dependency to bug 170218
which is the report on adding DejaVu.
RedHat/Fedora neven had a proper Greek font.
The resolution of this bug report should not be "CANTFIX" but rather link
towards some other report that offers a glimpse of resolution.
