Let's not require fonts in the package.  Instead we should patch the package to use the fonts in the system location.  If the fonts are not installed then too bad for the user.
Comment 3 Christian Tosta 2009-05-20 21:42:19 EDT
Hum... But if the user choose to user other fonts as your system default? He can uses dejavu-lgc-fonts or other in place of dejavu-fonts. Specific fonts like sazanami-fonts-gothic and wqy-zenhei-fonts shouldn't required by default. Users can not need it. Too, so much fonts installed can make Xorg to run poorly.
Comment 4 Warren Togami 2009-05-20 21:51:24 EDT
I tested this.  In my experience the only font that is different from system standard for those languages that is missing some glyphs is the Chinese one.  The real bug here is it insists upon using fonts at a certain location in the filesystem.  It should just ask the OS and live with whatever it is given like all other apps.
Comment 5 Gwyn Ciesla 2009-05-21 08:11:00 EDT
I agree, hence my BZ in an upstream bug I filed.
