Description of problem:
If I run KDE apps in Japanese locale on GNOME,
their text is poorly displayed with the font
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Login to GNOME
2. LANG=ja_JP.UTF-8 kate
Default application text appears double-spaced.
Same as for English etc (no langpack installed).
Also seems true for F11. I haven't tested under KDE.
> (no langpack installed).
This seems irrelevant - even with kde-l10n-Japanese installed
still happens for ascii text.
I cannot reproduce this issue on F11. it seems your local fontconfig setting causes the problem. Could you please try with a fresh new user?

Rawhide screenshot of "LANG=ja_JP.UTF-8 kate".
I can reproduce with a fresh user in rawhide in KDE too,
with ipa-*gothic-fonts installed.
Actually only with IPAPGothic
I can reproduce it with IPA gothic fonts installed.
Still see this with current rawhide.
I'm asking upstream this issue and waiting for a reply.
Tomorrow's rawhide should revert to vlgothic which help with this.
This issue has been forwarded to "upstream" and there are no way of fixing that in house (apparently fontforge is a bit buggy), I'll leave this to upstream and visit again when they have a new release in the future.
