Description Bill Nottingham 2007-10-15 22:14:06 EDT
Description of problem:

One of the locales you can pick in GDM on the livecd is Thai. However, if you do
this, you get a rather ugly font.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

rawhide-20071015 livecd
Comment 1 Jens Petersen 2008-02-05 21:25:32 EST
Late followup - problem is simply that we don't have a Thai TrueType/OpenType
font yet in fedora, unfortunately.
Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2008-02-05 22:33:55 EST
Right, but since it's using (apparently) a crappy bitmap font, can we remove
that font from the livecd?
Comment 3 Jens Petersen 2008-02-06 02:25:46 EST
I'd rather add a Thai font. :)
Comment 4 Jens Petersen 2008-02-08 02:06:48 EST
Added thaifonts-scalable to comps-f9
Comment 5 Jens Petersen 2008-04-24 02:46:38 EDT
Looks fine now with F9 Preview Live.
