Description Akira TAGOH 2010-03-30 03:48:16 UTC
Description of problem:
All of detailed information is available on my post at the fonts list:
http://lists.fedoraproject.org/pipermail/fonts/2010-March/001117.html

binding="same" in the fontconfig config file prevents to apply the rule for the
specific
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:
 66-lohit-punjabi.conf

Comment 1 Pravin Satpute 2010-04-16 17:40:13 UTC
fixed in lohit-punjabi-fonts-2.4.4-1 for fc13 as well in devel

Comment 2 Akira TAGOH 2010-04-28 10:58:19 UTC
just for the note in the future, here is the testing result as I usually did for other fonts packages in this issue:
# rpm -qa lohit-punjabi-fonts
lohit-punjabi-fonts-2.4.4-1.fc13.noarch
# 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=pa
Lohit-Punjabi.ttf: "Lohit Punjabi" "Regular"
# fc-match monospace:lang=pa-in
Lohit-Punjabi.ttf: "Lohit Punjabi" "Regular"
# fc-match monospace:lang=pa-pk
DejaVuSansMono.ttf: "DejaVu Sans Mono" "Book"
# 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=pa
Lohit-Punjabi.ttf: "Lohit Punjabi" "Regular"
# fc-match serif:lang=pa-in
Lohit-Punjabi.ttf: "Lohit Punjabi" "Regular"
# fc-match serif:lang=pa-pk
DejaVuSerif.ttf: "DejaVu Serif" "Book"

No explicit rules for monospace and serif in lohit-punjabi-fonts.

# 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=pa
Lohit-Punjabi.ttf: "Lohit Punjabi" "Regular"
# fc-match sans:lang=pa-in
Lohit-Punjabi.ttf: "Lohit Punjabi" "Regular"
# fc-match sans:lang=pa-pk
DejaVuSans.ttf: "DejaVu Sans" "Book"

That looks good. getting different result for pa-pk is expected behaviour since fontconfig has different orth file for pa-pk.

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