Description Dimitris Glezos 2006-06-22 16:06:24 UTC
Description of problem:

Greek fonts are missing from Anaconda and the installation procedure in greek is
almost impossible using the current fonts.

Actual results:

See attached screenshot.

Additional info:

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.

Comment 3 Jeremy Katz 2006-06-22 16:39:17 UTC
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.
