Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 475795
Different fallback font used in printed document than on-screen for a missing font
Last modified: 2009-01-29 18:10:18 EST
Description of problem:
When printing a document, an incorrect font is substituted.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Print attached (private) document.
See private attachment.
Should use correct font Liberation, not Nimbus Oblique.
Um, I see in the source .odt that in a lot of the *RH paragraph styles there are some fonts used with names like "Liberation Sans Bold" with the additional "Bold" feature toggled on. i.e. not "Liberation Sans" with bold toggled on, but an unknown font named "Liberation Sans Bold" if you see what I'm getting at. i.e. the moral equivalent of fc-match "Liberation Sans Bold"
Ah, yes, I see. Actually for that I get another font:
$ fc-match "Liberation Sans Bold"
DejaVuSans.ttf: "DejaVu Sans" "Book"
...and in fact this seems to be the font that is used on-screen.
Shouldn't this same font be used for print output?
Logged a patch upstream to register the fontconfig-based fallback system for printing as well. Not sure why we don't already do this, might be some dragons here so checking with upstream about it.
upstream seems happy enough, committed to F-10 and devel will be in F-10 >= 3.0.0-9.11 when and if there is an F-10 OOo update
