Description Akira TAGOH 2010-03-29 23:40:14 EDT
Description of problem:
All of detailed information is available on my post at the fonts list:

binding="same" in the fontconfig config file prevents to apply the rule for the
language only properly. As a result, fonts is used for non-targetted languages
and it may gives different look and feel in some cases.

I'd propose to get rid of binding="same" from:

Comment 3 Fedora Update System 2010-04-16 19:35:16 EDT
lklug-fonts-0.6-4.20090803cvs.fc13 has been pushed to the Fedora 13 testing repository.  If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
 If you want to test the update, you can install it with 
 su -c 'yum --enablerepo=updates-testing update lklug-fonts'.  You can provide feedback for this update here: http://admin.fedoraproject.org/updates/lklug-fonts-0.6-4.20090803cvs.fc13
Comment 4 Akira TAGOH 2010-04-21 08:22:01 EDT
Testing result:
# rpm -q lklug-fonts
# fc-match monospace:lang=en
DejaVuSansMono.ttf: "DejaVu Sans Mono" "Book"
# fc-match monospace:lang=en-us
DejaVuSansMono.ttf: "DejaVu Sans Mono" "Book"
# fc-match monospace:lang=si
lklug.ttf: "LKLUG" "Regular"
# fc-match monospace:lang=si-lk
lklug.ttf: "LKLUG" "Regular"
# fc-match serif:lang=en
DejaVuSerif.ttf: "DejaVu Serif" "Book"
# fc-match serif:lang=en-us
DejaVuSerif.ttf: "DejaVu Serif" "Book"
# fc-match serif:lang=si
lklug.ttf: "LKLUG" "Regular"
# fc-match serif:lang=si-lk
lklug.ttf: "LKLUG" "Regular"

Even though no monospaced fonts nor serif fonts in lklug-fonts (nor probably in Fedora? dunno I don't have them installed at least because it's not in comps), this would be good side-effect fontconfig tries to pick up the better font for the language. however please note that this kind of expectation isn't a good idea because it could be messed up when any existing fonts started to support Sinhala.

# fc-match sans:lang=en
DejaVuSans.ttf: "DejaVu Sans" "Book"
# fc-match sans:lang=en-us
DejaVuSans.ttf: "DejaVu Sans" "Book"
# fc-match sans:lang=si
lklug.ttf: "LKLUG" "Regular"
# fc-match sans:lang=si-lk
lklug.ttf: "LKLUG" "Regular"

That looks good.

# for i in $(ls /usr/share/locale|grep -v si); do fc-match sans:lang=$i|grep LKLUG; [ $? = 0 ] && echo $i; done

So the updated package works as expected.
