Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 71618
Japanese GDM has some font errors
Last modified: 2015-01-07 18:59:20 EST
Description of Problem:
If you run GDM with LANG=ja_JP.eucJP, then you will get a display which is
mostly correct, except for the characters in the lower-left corner, where the
language, session and system icons appear. This is with gdm-220.127.116.11-2.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Think this is a Pango problem ... Pango doesn't do the right
fallbacks for the FT2 backend.
This should be fixed in redhat-artwork 0.38, I would expect it to be anyway.
Actaully, I took this bug because there were pango issues with
the exact fonts that should be used, but that should be fixed
as of pango-1.1.1-1
OK, fix confirmed with redhat-artwork-0.39-1 and pango-1.1.1-1. Someone please
reopen if there are still font issues, but the ones that were pointed out to me
by Owen and Adrian appeared fixed.
