Even if you change the printing font with gtkhtml-properties-capplet, can't you
print it out?
I think the printing is not broken. but the default font is broken for Japanese.
Comment 2 Akira TAGOH 2002-11-11 05:32:56 EST
Well, Ok. this problem was caused by some issues:
- we can't print CJK text out with the current default font; default font should
be gettextize.
- gtkhtml-properties-capplet's UI sucks; needed stuff for printing is a family
name and font size. but gtkhtml-properties-capplet provides it with gtkfontsel.
it contains the unusable fonts for printing, and that configuration is saved as
XLFD. So UI needs to be rewritten for gnome-print.
- we missed any link for gtkhtml-properties-capplet; people can't change it from
Evolution. the font properties are actually gtkhtml stuff. but people who
doesn't know it's gtkhtml stuff, assumes it's Evolution issue.

How much of this has already been filed on bugzilla.ximian.com?
Do we have links to those bugs? Do we have patches?

I think it was fixed in Red Hat Linux 9. sorry for too late reply.
