Description of problem:
If the ttfonts package is installed and redhat-update-gnome-fonts-install is
run, evolution prints email messages using a horrible italic script font for
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
3.run evolution, and print or print-preview a msg containing proportional font.
Actual Results: really bad italic script font used for proportional font.
Expected Results: readable output.
Is ttfonts the "total crap that should never be installed" fonts package?
Hmm, did we drop it from Milan?
It exists on the tree. but latest-pkg says it's deprecated or not included.
About this problem, I think gtkhtml's font settings may relates it, because
gtkhtml considered a printing font from XLFD which set up on
gtkhtml-properties-capplet. so I want to make sure what did you choose a
variable width for printing on gtkhtml-properties-capplet.
BTW we missed gtkhtml-properties-capplet from menu. it was already difficult to
find from menu and UI was also difficult to understand. so font settings issue
may be increased.
Why was this package dropped?
ttfonts is dead, closing
