Description Julian Sikorski 2009-06-10 14:37:49 EDT
Description of problem:
There are some problems with DejaVu LGC Serif Condensed Italic font, which make it unavailable to gtk font selector and fc-list.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start gedit
2. Go to edit → preferences → fonts and colours
3. Uncheck system fonts usage, start font selector
4. Pick dejavu lgc serif
Actual results:
There are two “Condensed” entries in the styles box, but there is no condensed italic.

Expected results:
Condensed and Condensed Italic are both present once.

Additional info:
[jsikorski@snowball ~]$ rpm -ql dejavu-lgc-fonts | grep Serif
[jsikorski@snowball ~]$ fc-list | grep LGC | grep Serif
DejaVu LGC Serif:style=Italic
DejaVu LGC Serif,DejaVu LGC Serif Condensed:style=Condensed,Book
DejaVu LGC Serif,DejaVu LGC Serif Condensed:style=Condensed Bold Italic,Bold Italic
DejaVu LGC Serif:style=Bold
DejaVu LGC Serif:style=Book
DejaVu LGC Serif:style=Bold Italic
DejaVu LGC Serif,DejaVu LGC Serif Condensed:style=Condensed Bold,Bold

nim-nim found out the following:
[nim@arekh ~]$ fc-query /usr/share/fonts/dejavu/DejaVuSerifCondensed-Italic.ttf |grep style:
<nim-nim>  style: "Condensed"(s) "Book"(s)
<nim-nim> [nim@arekh ~]$ fc-query /usr/share/fonts/dejavu/DejaVuSansCondensed-Oblique.ttf |grep style
<nim-nim>  style: "Condensed Oblique"(s) "Oblique"(s)

He said that this could be some  “Oblique” vs “Italic” problem. Also, bug #466678 might be related, but I'm not sure about that.
Comment 1 Nicolas Mailhot 2009-06-10 15:08:17 EDT
It seems that while the name and OS/2 bits are correct and similar for both fonts, the TTF Style subfamily for DejaVuSerifCondensed-Italic is Book and not Italic (DejaVuSansCondensed-Oblique has Oblique there)

So it seems to be a font bug after all
