Description of problem:
After installing vlgothic-fonts-20090204-2.fc10.noarch, some Japanese
characters are incorrectly rendered with a different font (apparently
a Chinese one). More specifically, when an ASCII alphabetical character is
followed some Japanese characters (Japanese punctuations for example),
the followed characters are not rendered with the VLGothic font, but
with a Chinese one.
This does not happen with VLGothic-fonts-20081029-1.fc10.noarch and before.
See attached image for comparison. gedit is used for capturing.
The "monospace" font and the "sans-serif" font causes this problem.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Display a Japanese text with "monospace" or "sans-serif" font.
Some characters are rendered with a Chinese font.
Characters should be rendered with the VLGothic font.
Better reassigning to cjkunifonts.
Can you post the output of:
rpm -qa \*fonts\* | sort
It would be hopeful if you can narrow down which font package is causing the problem.
It might be baekmuk-ttf for example? (see also end of bug 475743 comment 32)
This one might be duplicated to bug #475743.
The issue is 64-ttf-arphic-uming.conf. After renaming it to 67-... various glyphs came up as gothic. This file probably needs to be split into a high-priority serif portion, and a low-priority sans portion.
Perhaps you can test with the cjkuni-*fonts packages in rawhide and see if that works better for you?
They already have some fontconfig changes included.
Installing the fonts from Rawhide did help.
i have backported to F10:
cjkunifonts-0.2.20080216.1-11.fc10 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 10.
Hi Yuta, could you kindly provide the test case you mentioned in comment #1 please? Thanks.

Test case after cjkunifonts-uming package updated
OK, here's a screenshot. It seems that everything is working flawlessly.
Just FYI, I've updated only cjkunifonts-uming package, because it's the only
package of cjkunifonts-* series installed in my box.
Thanks for testing.
cjkunifonts-0.2.20080216.1-11.fc10 has been pushed to the Fedora 10 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
