[kn_IN] "Kannada" Language option is missing in the gdm of Live CD
Last modified: 2015-04-21 00:34:18 EDT
Description of problem:
When I tried to Kannda Language option is missing from the list of Languages at
the bottom of the startup screen when booted with the Live CD of fedora-9
preview. Hence one can not boot the Fedora-9 Preview Live iso in kn_IN locale,
and there will be no support for kannada.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora-9 Preview Live cd
Booting with Fedora-9 Preview Live cd
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Boot with Fedora Live cd (Preview)
2.At the automatic login screen click the "other.." option in "Language" field
"Kannada(ಕನ್ನಡ)" option is missing in the list of languages
Kannada(ಕನ್ನಡ must be included along with the other languages
Additional info: In the Fedora-9 Beta Live cd, the "Kannada" option was
available, but I observed that, the fonts were missing, and just the unicode
boxes were seen even after logging in. Looks like whole kannada support have
been removed from the fedora-9 live cd

Fedora-9 Preview LIve-CD GDM Screen
GDM filters out languages that don't have font coverage. If we want to support
Kannada out of the box then we need to add lohit-fonts-kannada to the livecd's
list of installed packages.
If you want it after the fact, install lohit-fonts-kannada.
talking to jeremy, Bill fixed this yesterday.
