It all works fine for me in F8 as far as I can see, so I'm going to need to see
these screenshots and a how to reproduce and possibly the output of fc-list, and
the output of echo $LANG otherwise I'm going to close this as worksforme.

Comment 2 Satyabrata Maitra 2007-12-11 09:13:00 UTC
Ok, Let me explain pls. The fine tuned steps are as follows :-

1. Open oowriter in en_US locale
2. Copy and Paste the content of following URL there in oowriter.
   bn.wikipedia.org OR
(Follow the bn_IN locale content and paste it in oowriter)
3. Observe the result
4. Comment :- As when oowriter is opened in en_US locale, it takes Liberation
Serif font by default. So the problem will be traced easily if oowriter is
opened in en_US locale. But even if it is opened in bn_IN locale, and after
following the step 2, if the content is selected and the font is changed to
Liberation (serif, sans or mono), the result will be shown as the same as en_US.
I think Liberation font is not able to handle the Indic locale to show. I
checked with Chinese contents, its showing OK.

Comment 3 Caolan McNamara 2007-12-11 10:55:49 UTC
Its not as simple as that. e.g. Copying the bn text from the above test case and
Ctrl + Shift + V and paste as unformatted text, this will likely work. Or paste
as  normal, select the text and change the font to "random". 

i.e. "DejaVu LGC Sans Mono" seems to be the problem, somehow either claiming to
support the glyphs or icu is handling it differently for some specific reason
