Description Akira TAGOH 2010-03-30 03:59:44 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:
 65-wqy-microhei.conf

Comment 5 Akira TAGOH 2010-04-26 08:09:25 UTC
Testing result without wqy-zenhei-fonts due to its priority thing:
# rpm -qa wqy-microhei-fonts
wqy-microhei-fonts-0.2.0-0.3.beta.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=zh
wqy-microhei.ttc: "WenQuanYi Micro Hei" "Regular"
# fc-match monospace:lang=zh-cn
wqy-microhei.ttc: "文泉驛微米黑" "Regular"
# fc-match monospace:lang=zh-hk
hanazono.ttf: "HanaMin" "Regular"
# fc-match monospace:lang=zh-sg
wqy-microhei.ttc: "文泉驛微米黑" "Regular"
# fc-match monospace:lang=zh-tw
hanazono.ttf: "HanaMin" "Regular"

That looks good though, the font for zn-cn and zh-sg was picked up by the implicit rules in fontconfig that happens when no explicit rules and fallback to the fonts. so

  <test name="lang">
    <string>zh</string>
  </test>

  should be

  <test name="lang">
    <string>zh-cn</string>
    <string>zh-sg</string>
  </test>

since most applications gives the language with ll-cc in the query from current locale.

# 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=zh
wqy-microhei.ttc: "WenQuanYi Micro Hei" "Regular"
# fc-match sans:lang=zh-cn
wqy-microhei.ttc: "文泉驛微米黑" "Regular"
# fc-match sans:lang=zh-hk
hanazono.ttf: "HanaMin" "Regular"
# fc-match sans:lang=zh-sg
wqy-microhei.ttc: "文泉驛微米黑" "Regular"
# fc-match sans:lang=zh-tw
hanazono.ttf: "HanaMin" "Regular"

Same the above.

# 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=zh
hanazono.ttf: "HanaMin" "Regular"
# fc-match serif:lang=zh-cn
wqy-microhei.ttc: "文泉驛微米黑" "Regular"
# fc-match serif:lang=zh-hk
hanazono.ttf: "HanaMin" "Regular"
# fc-match serif:lang=zh-sg
wqy-microhei.ttc: "文泉驛微米黑" "Regular"
# fc-match serif:lang=zh-tw
hanazono.ttf: "HanaMin" "Regular"

No explicit rules for serif in wqy-microhei-fonts.

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

No affects to other languages.
