gdm text unreadable in japanese locale
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:43:50 EDT
Description of Problem:
With the default system locale set to Japanese. The text lines
immediately above and below the login/password entry box and
the gdm "panel" labels are unreadable.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set system locale to Japanese
2. Restart gdm
All the text (except "Welcome to <hostname>" is so faint
as to be completely unreadable.
The text should be clearly visible.
A font configuration issue one presumes.

Should be fixed in pango-1.0.99.020703-3.

- For FT2 backend, supply FT_LOAD_NO_BITMAP to avoid problems with
fonts with embedded bitmaps (#67851)
Will it disable the embedded bitmap feature for GNOME2 all together?
Confirmed fixed. Thanks.
No, this only disables it for rendering text via the GNOME canvas.
In most other places, bitmaps will be used as long as antialiasing
is off. (Offering the option of using embedded bitmaps where they
exist and antialiasing elsewhere may be something we want to do
