Description Leonid Kanter 2002-04-10 14:25:51 UTC
Description of Problem:

If you start gtkrc application in uk_UA locale, fonts are bigger than if
application is started in en_US or ru_RU.koi8r locale.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How Reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. install beta4 with Russian and Ukrainian languages enabled
2. start the same gtk application in C, ru_RU.koi8r and uk_UA locales

Actual Results:

you'll see than in application started in Ukrainian locale fonts are bigger

Expected Results:

Font size must be the same for all locales

Additional Information:
It happens because there are 14 points fonts in gtkrc.uk while all other gtkrc
files are configured for 12 points.

Comment 2 Owen Taylor 2002-04-10 23:28:04 UTC
Why does your patch change the foundary for Russian from cronyx to *?
The fonts we ship have cronyx as the foundary; are there other fonts
out there that people use that have different foundaries? If * is
in the foundary field, it won't be deterministic which one gets
chosen. (I think actually cronyx will typically be chosen because
it is early in the alphabet)

Comment 3 Owen Taylor 2002-04-11 16:08:29 UTC
Fixed in 1.2.10-12

Comment 4 Leonid Kanter 2002-04-11 16:14:08 UTC
cyrillic fonts from fonts-KOI8-R package (which are preferred for koi8-r
encoding) have "adobe" foundry. "cronyx" fonts from XFree86-cyrillic package are
broken, see  bug 59484 for example. 

Comment 5 Owen Taylor 2002-04-11 16:17:20 UTC
OK, so this doesn't actually matter... the -adobe-.....-iso8859-1 
pattern actually will pick up the koi8-u font since character
sets are ignored in fontset patterns-- it's as if all the patterns
end in -*-*. (Yes, this is confusing.)

Anyways, the change is in the current package, whenever that propagates
to Raw Hide.
