The paps output without font setting
Description of problem:
When we use "paps" to convert a text file with Traditional Chinese and English fonts, the Traditional Chinese printout fonts will be lighter than the English fonts. If we specify the font in the command, e.g. " paps --font='DejaVu Sans Mono' test.txt > test.ps ", then the printout font shades will look like the same for both the Traditional Chinese and the English fonts. Because we don't see the problem in Fedora Core 6, please check to see if we can use "paps" to convert the text directly without specifying the fonts extraly. Thank you for your assistance.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. excute the command " paps test.txt > test.ps "
The Traditional Chinese printout font is lighter than the English printout font.
The printout font shades is the same for both the Traditional Chinese font and the English font.

The paps output with font setting
This isn't a paps issue but pango, because it depends on how pango splits the cluster. you can see same behavior on gedit say. though it could be improved with the fontconfig configuration as you pointed out it looks no problem with specifying the font name. anyway, we have similar bug on bugzilla. I'll close this as dup of it so far.
