Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 274801
Chinese font between 9pt to 12pt does not display correctly in gedit
Last modified: 2008-06-16 22:18:48 EDT
Description of problem:
I used NSimSun Chinese font (a ttf file I copied from Windows environment) in
FC7 and especially in gedit. Chinese characters did not display at all when
choosing size between 9pt to 12pt, whereas below 9pt or above 12 pt it displayed
normally. One possible cause is that I set antialias to off on *all* fonts when
the size is equal to or below 12pt. But this does-not-display symptom is not
present on other fonts I tried except with NSimSun or SimSun.
I attached a few screen shots to demonstrate the symptom.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
In Gedit, setting the font to NSimSun and font size to 10, and open a file
containing Chinese characters.
Chinese characters do not display at all
Chinese characters should show up in the window.
Created attachment 184941 [details]
zip file containing a text file with chinese characters (in UTF8) and three jpeg images with different font size settings
This message is a reminder that Fedora 7 is nearing the end of life. Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 7. It is Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 'version' of '7'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 7's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 7 is end of life. If you would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this bug. If you are unable to change the version, please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes bugs or makes them obsolete. If possible, it is recommended that you try the newest available Fedora distribution to see if your bug still exists.
Please read the Release Notes for the newest Fedora distribution to make sure it will meet your needs:
The process we are following is described here: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/HouseKeeping
Fedora 7 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on June 13, 2008.
Fedora 7 is no longer maintained, which means that it will not
receive any further security or bug fix updates. As a result we
are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version
of Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
