Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 78364
bad characters in language selection
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:48:38 EDT
Description of Problem:
When I want to select a different language in the gfx login screen and click on
the word "Language", a list of languages is displayed, where are some errors in
the font or characters :
- no arabic letter is displayed
- chinese , japan and korean letters are displayed as a rectangle with four
hex digits inside, two digits on top and two on bottom
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. click "Language" on the X11 login screen
some chars are missing or not correct
Correct arab, chinese, japan and korean chars are drawn
This is a function of which fonts you have installed.
We don't want to force people to install CJK or Arabic fonts.
Maybe pango could provide some API to say "can we render this string"
but failing that or requiring everyone to install all fonts there's not much to
do with this bug.
