Description Akira TAGOH 2010-03-29 23:41:13 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 4 Akira TAGOH 2010-04-21 21:33:47 EDT
Testing result:
# rpm -q lohit-assamese-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=as
Lohit-Bengali.ttf: "Lohit Bengali" "Regular"
# fc-match monospace:lang=as-in
Lohit-Bengali.ttf: "Lohit Bengali" "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=as
Lohit-Bengali.ttf: "Lohit Bengali" "Regular"
# fc-match serif:lang=as-in
Lohit-Bengali.ttf: "Lohit Bengali" "Regular"

No monospaced fonts nor serif fonts are assigned in lohit-assemese-fonts (and no packages available in Fedora? otherwise we are missing it in comps). so the above result should be ok so far. please have the certain rules if you want to use the different fonts for monospace and serif for Assamese.

# 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=as
Lohit-Bengali.ttf: "Lohit Bengali" "Regular"
# fc-match sans:lang=as-in
Lohit-Bengali.ttf: "Lohit Bengali" "Regular"

This result is because of 66-lohit-assamese.conf is lower priority than 65-nolatin.conf. the result itself is ok for this bug. but to correct the wrong query result above, rename 66-lohit-assamese.conf to 65-0- or something like that.

# for i in $(ls /usr/share/locale|grep -v -E '^as$'); do fc-match sans:lang=$i|grep "Lohit Assamese"; [ $? = 0 ] && echo $i; done

FWIW after renaming 66-lohit-assamese.conf (and 66-lohit-bengali.conf as well) to 65-0-.

Lohit-Assamese.ttf: "Lohit Assamese" "Regular"

this may be an orth file issue. fontconfig is figuring out "bn" contains "as". for workaround, that would be good to get rid of compare="contains" and use as-in instead of as. see my recent post on the fonts list for more details of this issue.

Anyway, all the above issues are different issues for this. so I'd waive them so far.
