Description of problem:
there are no Kochi-fonts.
start mozilla> preferences> fonts> Japanese
You'll see "No fonts available".
I installed kochi-fonts, but I can't see them.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
2.there are no Kochi-fonts
Actual Results: I can't see any japanese truetype fonts.
Expected Results: I CAN see japanese truetype fonts.
Gnome2 uses truetype fonts,
so we can't see any characters.
I'm waiting for your next beta (or fixed phoebe) ;)
Did you install in X graphical mode? My text grahpical mode installation
crashed near the end before it installed some Japanese packages. Did you see
any error messages near the end of the installation?

I use nVidia's geforce2mx-64mb and sony multiscan E200.
Did you check md5 sums?
Yes, my MD5SUMS were valid.
I'm not 100% sure this is a missing or corrupted package issue, I still haven't
done a graphical Phoebe install yet. I'm trying that next.
>Yes, my MD5SUMS were valid.
OK, when I installed phoebe, I selected "Custom Install".
then I selected these packages:
other window managers(?? I don't remember..)
tools for development(gnome-dev, kde-dev, etc)
They need about 2.5gb disk usage.
I didn't select server packages.
Bug 80314 might be related to this problem, not entirely sure.
We don't have a 'kochi-fonts' package - is this a different package you're talking
Where does it install the fonts to?
so just download "ttfonts-ja-1.2-17.noarch.rpm",
then do it:
# rpm2cpio ttfonts-ja-1.2-17.noarch.rpm | cpio -id
>Where does it install the fonts to?
You'll find "kochi-gothic.ttf" and " kochi-mincho.ttf" in
I'll delete phoebe soon, I'm waiting for next beta..
Hm, I can see those fonts here, but my box is an upgrade, not a fresh install.
Will have to check on a fresh install sometime towards the new year.
Now I can see Japanese TrueType fonts.
I did like this:
# cd /usr/share/fonts/ja/
# rm -rf default*
# rm -rf fonts.cache-1
and you'll be able to see Japanese characters!
Hm, sounds like something odd with how fontconfig handled that package install?
fixed in phoebe2. thanks.
